A Bad Way To Make A Snow Man

Sometimes life can be rough, and that's a real bummer. Lucky for us we have nice things to keep us going. Such nice things would include fireplaces, hot coco, fuzzy socks and good company. Unfortunately for me, I choose to use my time in a less wonderful way.


Step One:

Roll a massive snow ball. You know you are doing it correctly if you have to go in and change your pants because the pair you are currently wearing have become soaking wet due to the way you leverage the snowball with your legs to keep it rolling.

Step Two:

Realize that you are far, far too weak to lift the second ball up on to the first one. Attempt lifting it with a shovel, metal bar, your feet, your arms, your back, some chairs, then think about easier ways to go about this. Realize that it would be easier to roll the second ball up onto the porch, then onto the first snowball.

Step Three:

Success! You have made it onto the porch! Congratulations! It wasn't so easy, but you are much stronger than you may have given yourself credit for! Now, you just have to roll it over onto the first snowball. It seems easy, but what you may realize is that in the process of rolling the ball up the sidewalk, it mostly turned to ice, and everyone knows, ice makes everything more complicated.

Step Four:

Continue to attempt to roll the ice block onto the other ice block. You will continue to fail eventually you will catch your glove in between the two masses. This is the sad part. Now you just sit down in the snow and wait.

Eventually I just took my glove off. After a little break I managed to roll the other snow ball onto the first one. I also managed to get my glove back. It proved to be helpful.

Unfortunately, I never finished the snow man. It got late and I got cold.

A bad way to make a snow man is at midnight, in sweat pants and a t-shirt, in the rain with wet socks and boots.
