|Trauma, that’s what. It’s the smell of chemical defenses and first aid. The fresh, “green” scent of a just-mowed lawn is the lawn> trying to save itself from the injury you just inflicted.
I am thinking of M. Night Shyamalan’s movie,
is not too far fetched! Here’s the short description of the movie
Starting in New York City everyone is suddenly killing themselves. Everyone drops what they’re doing, seemingly goes catatonic for a moment and then offs themselves anyway they can.
Fling themselves off the top of a building, shoot themselves in the head…whatever.
The Happening can happen!
