i hate the smell of freshly cut grass

Don't get me wrong. There is something satisfying about mowing the lawn. You can see row after row of tall weedy stuff sucked under to leave a beautiful row of uniform bright green blades. Grass never looks as vibrant as when it's tops are just recently lopped off. Is it visually appealing? Sure. A perfume I would want to wear? Definitely not.

Anyone who says they love the smell of freshly cut grass has never cut it. Mixed with the vibrating feeling of the mower, and the exhaust spewing into your face, it is a downright nauseating combination.

Grass in the rain: smells nice. Grass all mashed down and muddy from playing in cleats: smells like spring sports and fun. Grass pieces splattered all over your bare legs, mixed with sweat, mixed with exhaust: disgusting.
