the honeymoon is over

Well, we aren’t in the honeymoon phase anymore.  I wouldn’t say that’s necessarily a bad thing, but it does change certain dynamics.  I no longer feel compelled to take someone with me on the bus or tram.  I can safely go by myself to class or to the travel agent to talk about trips I’m planning.  Certain things about the city irk me.  Why can’t anyone throw away their cigarette butts?  There are trash cans with ashtrays all over the place, but no one bothers to use them.  The other day I was lying on the grass in the park, minding my own business and reading my book.  I kept smelling stale cigarettes, though even though no one around me was smoking.  Finally I got up and moved, and when I did I noticed two cigarette butts under where I had been lying.  Ew.  Not a yard away was a trash can, complete with ashtray.  Some things I will never understand.
