Actual garbage from a couple blocks down.
Tonight The ♥G♥ and I went for a walk around our neighborhood. This is the week that the city says you can put anything you want out on the curb and the trash guys will pick it up without you having to get any stickers or pay any fees or anything. It was fascinating! There were so many piles of stuff
out waiting for tomorrow morning's trash pickup! We got a perfectly good wood CD cabinet. And there were all these guys in pickup trucks driving around picking up scrap metal. The same sort of thing happens every year, but it seemed like there was exponential growth in the phenomenon this year. A great opportunity to be nosy (anthropologically speaking, of course). We might just take walks around other parts of town this week whose pickup days are different than ours. If Heinrich Schliemann
is around, maybe we'll see if he wants to go too. I'll keep an eye out for good photo ops.
