  • I would give up taste. I am diabetic and I love chocolate. It would not be hard to resist if I could not taste it.

  • Lord that is tough. I would have to say it was a toss up between smell and taste. I would most likely go with smell, but that would really pun intended.

  • I'd have to say either taste or sound. Taste has gotten me in trouble for many years. I could stand to lose a few. My mother is deaf and I have watched her surpass many people's expectations over my lifetime so I know that I could cope without sound if I had to.

  • Smell.

    I would want to die if I could never see my love or son again, If I couldn't hear their loving voices and my sons beautiful laughter. Taste...well I'm a cook. I spend all my time in the kitchen. I love cooking for anyone and losing my taste would seriously suck. And touch, i am a very physical person. Running my fingers through DH's hair, the way the grass feels in between my toes KWIM?

    But smell.... I have such a bad gag reflex to smells I think I could live with out that sense.

  • I would day smell or taste. Smell because like another poster said, I have a touchy gag reflex and it can be triggered very easily by certain smells.
