To the person who randomly left this mini snowman on my car, just know that I'm not even mad about it.

On Wednesday evening around 7:30 p.m. in Dartmouth, I was leaving the gym and was surprised to see that someone had left me a little present. This mini snowman was about 9-10 inches tall and had pennies for eyes, tiny sticks for arms and some brush for hair. What a kind gesture!

At first, I was taken back a bit, because from a distance, I couldn't tell what was sitting on the hood of my car until I got a closer look. There was no note attached to it, no witnesses in sight and nobody around in general. I was alone with confused thoughts and so many questions.

Was this random? Could this be someone I'm friends or an acquaintance with that was playing a harmless little prank? Lastly, the burning question: why?

As much as I wanted to leave it (I named it Rupert) behind, it was too cute to just waste away in a parking lot, so I took it home like a weirdo. Rupert sat proudly on my back porch for a good eight hours before the warmer weather swooped in. It is with sad and unfortunate news that Rupert the mini-snowman has passed on and transitioned into a puddle of water.

Whoever left this little guy on my car, if you're reading this, I simply want to say thank you for the good times Rupert brought into my life. It brought me joy and a much needed smile to my face.
