There must be something absolutely alluring about this particular trash can at 15th and Valencia that makes it the detritus destination of choice for passerby despite the stark emptiness of its cohorts across the street. Luckily, we were hipped to its widely regarded esteem when we noticed the gentleman walking ahead of us finish his coffee and, noting the fullness of the receptacle, nonetheless elected to toss his finished cup at the base of this bin rather than hold on for an extra 10 seconds and deposit it in the empty one across the street.
Surely there must be something magical about this garbage can that compels pedestrians to favor it over others even when at maximum capacity? Unfortunately, an exhaustive search revealed no unicorns or leprechauns.
We did find an empty box of Lucky Charms, however.
