Captain’s Log… Supplemental:
“We have encountered a rare phenomena in what appears to be a parallel universe to that of our home planet…Earth. The away team, led by Dr McCoy, have reported that there is a strange, new life-form on the planet surface that appears crystalline in nature”…
“My God Bones, what IS that thing? Set phasers to stun…Spock, analysis?’
“Captain, it appears to be some kind of miniature dirty snowman…scanning… scanning, the anomaly appears to consist of nasty slushy and blackened snow, origin: Austin Texas, an area that witnessed a small flurry of snow today, I suggest caution Jim.”
Snow falling on Cedar.
By the time the Hobbits got home from school, most of the snow had unfortunately melted, but there were a few select areas still harboring the white matter…
The hearts of the sago palms turned out to be a good snow collection points. Photon torpedoes.
Fast and nimble small hands formed the dirty snow, she did not care, oh no, she was on a snowman mission, and oh yes, she was hell-bent on creating one. She reached into her pocket and like a seasoned magician produced a baby carrot. (I have no idea where that even came from, or when she got it from, but a carrot she had).
I was really trying not to laugh when she forced the nose into the dirty slush-ball, she was serious, she was sculpting like Henry Moore, very Wallace and Gromit, complete with icicles hanging from his nose!
Then came the eyes and the “feet”, I had to turn away, it was reminding me of a crazed “Hedwig” from Harry Potter.
She thought he was best thing ever…”Frosty” (predictable I know), was then carefully picked up and gently placed into the relative safety of a wooden salad bowl (she anticipated that her brother wanted to stomp on poor Frosty’s head). Her actions were logical!
If he is “not there” in the morning, I anticipate some pre-school remorse.
