I’ve had a word stuck in my head for the past few days that I could not figure out what it meant. It just sort of popped into my head at odd moments when I wasn’t near a computer to do a search and the only dictionaries I have didn’t have it in them. But I finally remembered what it was!

The word is  petrichor – it’s the term for that smell after it rains.

I didn’t know there was a word for that, much less that I knew what it was.
