What is a smell that transports

you somewhere else?

EH "Freshly cut grass. It reminds me of my dad and the way he smelled after cutting the lawn. Routinely, after mowing, he would walk into the kitchen and grab a 2-liter orange Gatorade from the fridge. He has on his grass-stained hat, too small for all of his hair, and his grass-stained shoes. Always with smiles and completely exhausted... Our lawn is no joke. The house sits on top of a huge hill. This driveway taught me all I needed to know about parking."
