Maybe not quite a sign of spring

I heard bells clanging, and a diesel truck approaching. "Ice cream truck!" I thought to myself. I went to the door, and down the street came... a knife sharpening truck.

Wait, there are knife sharpening trucks?

Ice cream trucks that also sharpen knives: win. What self-respecting kid could resist the combination of sugary snacks and sharp objects?
Knife sharpening trucks that don't actually contain any ice cream: fail.

You know, I'd *love* it if a knife-sharpening truck showed up on my street. I've got a drawer full of wonderful old carbon-steel knives in the kitchen that desperately need sharpening, and I keep forgetting to dig out my whetstone...

You don't have knife-sharpening trucks where you're from? I remember them really far back from my childhood.

Of course, I remember that about ice cream trucks too.
