That funny smell again

| 2 Comments

Last year in mid-May, I wrote about a strange smell in the air that none of us quite agreed about. Wet dog? Smog? Sperm? Whatever it was, It's back again.

Also in the way of nature memoranda, yesterday the temperature hit 28.6 - hottest day of the year so far. Rainy season started in Okinawa and it won't be long before its here. Summer is certainly on its way. Bummer.

It's Japanese chestnut trees. Yup, they smell like.. well.. sperm. Funniest conversation I ever overheard was two girls walking up the hill from Akasaka-Mitsuke towards Kojimachi, where there are dozens of those trees:

Girl A: Hey, you getting that smell?
Girl B: Yes. What is it?
Girl A: I don't know, but it smells like, you-know.
Girl B: What?
Girl A: You know. Like "that" smell.
Girl B: That smell?
Girl A: Like... you know!
Girl B: Like what?
Girl A: Like... like... SPERM! IT SMELLS LIKE SPERM! Don't you know? What's wrong with you?
Girl B: I wouldn't know. We usually do it in the shower...

Hehehehehehe...
