Monday nights, we take the garbage cans to the curb. Last night, I brought the cans out, and I looked down the block. No one had their cans out. I went inside. No one had taken the kitchen garbage out. No one had taken the compost and recycling out. I looked at the calendar. Yes. It was Monday. Very weird.
I got all of our inside garbages emptied into the outside cans. Still, no one on the block had taken their cans out. So odd. I shook it off.
A little while later, I headed out to go pick up library books. When I got back, every can on the block was out. I guess everyone was delayed. Maybe they were all waiting for someone to start the process? It was still a strange feeling to be the only one on the block for a while.
