I was peddling my way to the pool this morning when I smelled... freshness, green, pine cones. I looked around, quickly, confused-- there are no trees on that leg of 16th street, going towards Mission Bay.... or any leg of 16th street, honestly. All I saw was a garbage truck.
And then I got it: this is the time of year, the one time of year garbage trucks smell good. Like freshly mulched christmas trees.
