A special friendship between a 3-year-old and a mail carrier has carried on through the pandemic as they keep up their daily dance parties. Three-year-old Ava has something to look forward to every day to make the best of her “stuck-at-home” situation. “She gets so excited. It’s amazing,” said Ian Simon, a U.S. Postal Service mail carrier. Separated by a windowpane, Ava and Simon dance it out every morning. It’s a tradition that started about two years ago and stuck. “One of us started to do a little jig, and we just keep on doing it now,” Simon said. During the pandemic, Ava’s dad David Whitlow says the interaction now means even more. “It starts the day on the right foot,” Whitlow said, “He’s really been a sweet person, and he’s made a huge difference during this kind of otherwise dark time.”
