30 October, Saturday

Things are pretty bad when your best dreams at night are that a garbage truck has arrived. I’ve had that dream twice this week.

But today, at long last, the dream has come true. The garbage on our corner was been collected and hauled away. It took two trucks to do it. Apparently the first one ran out of room, so another one came by a couple of hours later. Ours was the last garbage to be seen anywhere in our neighborhood.

Thing is, some who had their garbage collected a week earlier have told us they haven’t seen a garbage truck since. So, although before the strike garbage pick-up was daily (and needed to be!), now there’s no telling when it will happen again
