You certainly zeroed in on my trouble spot, in media res. I had wanted to say effluvial, then looked it up to make sure it was what I wanted to say--and it wasn't! In fact, I've had the wrong definition in my head for years! So then I was trying to think up a word that meant what I wanted to say, which is kind of the flotsam and jetsam of physiological processes, and detritus was the best I could come up with, but it's not right. I'll think about using no adjective at all, but I sure would love to think of the word I thought effluvial meant. Anyway, you have a good eye, and ear!
