”So you enjoy the way the air smells when it rains? Well, technically, it's how the air doesn't smell.

When it rains, dust, dander, and odor particulates are cleaned from the air by the falling water droplets. This reduces the amount of ”smell interference” from multiple odors. Thus you get an amplified sense of what remains in the air, meaning ”fresh air.”

Gross fact: Because of this amplified sense, this is why farts smell worse in the shower.”
Why would you send a first message 'not expectant of any reply'?
And if I were that woman, I would not think that was funny.
