Dartmouth Mystery Snowman Appears on Gazelle’s Car Without Explanation
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.
