Thursdays are Brooklyn Andracke’s favorite day of the week since it’s garbage day.
Every Thursday morning, she stands at the front window, waiting for the trash truck to pass by. Delver Dopson honks and waves to the enthusiastic young girl every Thursday morning.
Traci, Brooklyn’s mother, said that on the days they missed the trash truck, she’d drive around the neighborhood to find it and wave.
When Brooklyn’s birthday came on a Thursday, she wished to share her birthday cupcake with Delvar, so she waited for the truck at the end of the driveway.
Delvar jumped out of the vehicle as he arrived at Brooklyn’s house, and the two met for the first time. Traci mentioned how important the honks and waves were to them, and Delvar admitted that he rushes out of his meeting so he may see them.
Traci remembers Brooklyn’s subdued demeanour in the van that morning: she asked her if she was OK, and she said, ‘Mommy, I’m so happy.’
Every day is great, but today is somebody’s favorite day of the week! Delvar posted something on Facebook. Well… It’s also hers.
Delvar came to Brooklyn’s house the following Thursday with belated birthday presents for Brooklyn.
She said that he walked her around to the other side of the truck and pulled out the most incredible, fantastic, and kind birthday gifts for her. He said that he conducted some research and discovered that she liked the film Frozen, so his wife created this beautiful basket filled with everything Frozen. His duty isn’t done simply when he finishes a route. It’s when he can persuade someone to choose to smile, Delvar said on Facebook.
Delvar and Brooklyn’s friendship has developed since then, with Delvar uploading videos of his trash collection procedure with the caption “Kinda stinky but always smiley.”
Delvar arrived a month later with a dozen pink and purple cupcakes for Traci’s birthday, which likewise occurred on a Thursday.
