It's finally really Spring, not just no longer Winter. Yesterday the sweet aroma of apple blossoms wafted towards me from across the street while I was walking Cocoa, and I had to go over and suck in that smell and smoosh up some blossoms in my fingers. Yum. Which made me think about why it's no fun to walk around downtown Minneapolis. There's the criminal factor and homies living loud like there's no one else around, but the thing I hate the most is the smell. It smells like poo! I don't know if it's the sewage system or what, but p.u. They can put up all the fancy condos they want, but it still smells like poo. And yet I've never seen that as a factor in discussions of problems with bringing people back into downtown. Hmmm.
