After I started working at Dogo School about 2 and a half years ago, I noticed a musical sound coming from outside. I was surprised, because it was a garbage truck playing the tune. In the Dogo area, Thursday is burnable garbage day. In America, we can hear music coming from ice cream trucks, and not garbage trucks.
When I was a little kid, especially in the summer, an ice cream truck would drive around the neighborhood a couple times a week. It was usually sometime during the afternoon. As soon as we heard the truck, we would run outside with change (coins) in hand. We would then chase the truck until it stopped.
The ice cream person would walk back to a window in the side of the truck and take orders. They usually had popsicles (like Japanese ice candy) and ice cream sandwiches. All the neighborhood kids would talk while we ate our ice cream. I don’t know if ice cream trucks are around anymore, but they were a magical part of my childhood summers.
What is your favorite ice cream?
