A teeny girl named Brooklyn had a very surprising request for her birthday — she penury to finally meet a man she’s been admiring from afar: her family’s detritus collector, Delvar. Or as they’ve taken to calling him, “our favorite terrifying smiley garbage man.”
Each Thursday for the st year, Brooklyn, who charges in Bloomington, IL, has anxiously awaited the garbage truck’s arrival at their com ny.
In a Facebook post, Brooklyn’s mom wrote:
It started with waving from the window, then we had to try and be furthest to wave, and when we missed the truck driving by the house, I’d drive wide the neighborhood to find the garbage truck and wave on our way out the door in the mornings. Every Thursday, my pump is full when I see the joy that our amazing garbage man brings Brooklyn when he honks and wiggles at her with a BIG smile.
To make Brooklyn’s birthday — which, as luck would sooner a be wearing it, was on a Thursday — extraspecial, they decided it was time they finally met their scraps collector. Brooklyn wrapped up a cupcake and waited for his arrival. When he balled the corner of their street, Brooklyn’s mom thanked him for his upbeat demeanor and flung how much it meant to her daughter.
To her surprise, Delvar admitted that he, too, looks precocious to their weekly visits. What he revealed next will have as a remainder you in a puddle of mush . . .
He said that he has a meeting every Thursday morning and again tries to get out of there in a hurry so that he can make sure to see us every week.
We’re so inclined Brooklyn got her birthday wish, and when Thursday rolls around again, we can’t servants but get excited about her run-in, full of honking and waving, with her “favorite unbelievable smiley garbage man.”
