Holy Spun Sugar, Batman

Everyday I drive past Lucy's Drive In on Washington Blvd on my way home from work. Nearly every day it smells like cotton candy. Lucy's, if you're unfamiliar with it, serves Mexican food. I don't think cotton candy is on the menu at all. It's killing me. What is giving off the scent of cotton candy.

Then a thought occurred to me. What if it's not actually food I'm smelling? What if some villain is pumping out noxious gas with a pleasing cotton candy scent in an attempt to take over Gotham? The whole city will be under his spell by summer and we'll all be forced to wear red noses and big shoes. The Chuckler. He'd be a giant clown.

Clowns scare me.

I'm closing my windows tomorrow.

Way to take the fun out of it, Sachi. But, yes. You're probably right.

It's not churros and flan. I get a similar sickly sweet smell when I'm driving by the kosher restaurants on pico. what the heck are they cooking that smells like burnt caramel?!
