Thursday Thirteen #7: A Snowman’s Life Isn’t Easy

February 27, 2008

I have been fairly vocal about my dislike for snow. Having lived in Ohio all of my life, one would think I would have gotten used to that white, cold stuff. Actually, it is not that I dislike snow in and of itself, but all the crappy stuff that happens because of it – slippery roads to deal with in the early morning hours going to work, having to shovel the sidewalk when I get home from work, colder temperatures mean higher heat bills and warmer clothing, and I have to wear a coat. Yes, I could easily come up with thirteen complaints about snow for this week’s Thursday Thirteen, but then I thought; What about the snowman? I bet he must have some complaints of his own. And sure enough, he does.  Guess I shouldn’t complain so much about the snow!


Thirteen Things about Cricket’s Hearth: A Snowman’s Life is Not Easy – His Top 13 Complaints

1. snowman.jpg Every year, the same old top hat, geez someone should pass the word – top hats went out in the 50’s! And what’s with the broom? Duh…wouldn’t a shovel be more appropriate?!?


2. snowman-4.jpgJust because the average American gains 5-7 pounds every year doesn’t mean they have to pass their bad habits onto me!






 3. snowman-2.jpg Oh man, why can’t my family home have normal kids instead of those creative types?






4. snowman-3.jpg Oh, the shame, the shame! It’s that ##^%# Johnson’s dog – no respect I tell ya!! No respect for the lowly snowman.





5. snowman-6.jpgAlways kisses from little girls – why can’t they make a decent SnowWoman? I wish my family home had some of those creative type kids!



6. snowman-5.jpgHey, hey Johnson’s dog – stop right there! I saw what you did to Frosty next door. Stop it !  Stop it I tell ya!!!





7. snowman8.jpgI’m freezing my buttons off out here!






8. snowman-10.jpgThe little brat comes outside for 10 minutes and he gets a parka with snowpants, a hat under that hood, gloves and snowboots… I’m out here all night and I get a scarf and a cap?




9. snowman-7.jpgEvery year I tell em, don’t use tree branches for arms. Those ##^^$*# birds sit on them and poop on me. Isn’t it bad enough I have to contend with Johnson’s dog?



10. snowman-11.jpgWhy do people think they have to find creative places to build me? I wouldn’t be having this problem if I was in their backyard.




11. snowman-14.jpgJust one year it would be nice to have a neck, a shorter nose and a waistline!





12. snowman-9.jpgFirst they tell me I don’t get the royalties for Frosty the Snowman, then they slap chunks of coal in my eyes, and then stick that carrot up my nose . . . and they think I should smile?





13. snowman-13.jpgAnd after putting up with Johnson’s dog and those dang birds, then March arrives! I’m melting, I’m meltingggggg!!!! Oh what a life a Snowman has!

    We’ve only had one day where the snow was good for snowpeople – but what a snowperson we made! Of course, it was toppled in an hour by a couple boys…. sigh….

    Happy TT!

    Very very funny. It’s been about 30 years since I’ve seen enough snow to build a snow man. Happy TT.
