“What do you think?” Alicia asked her brother.
“I think it’s creepy,” Donny said.
“Creepy?” Alicia exclaimed. “How can you say that? He’s my best snowman ever.”
“Snowmen don’t have aluminum foil eyes, noses, or mouths,” Donny said. Their eyes and mouth should be made of pieces of coal and the nose should be a carrot. And where’s his corncob pipe?”
“Who says a snowman’s eyes and mouth must be made of coal and his nose out of a carrot?” Alicia asked.
“They do,” Donny said. “Just like Frosty.”
“Okay, smarty, where am I supposed to get pieces of coal, much less a corncob pipe?” Alicia asked. “A true artist uses the materials she has available to her. I think my snowman is very creative.”
“I’m gonna tell Mom that you used her aluminum foil for your creepy snowman,” Donny said.
“Mom knows, smarty,” Alicia said. “It was her suggestion to use the foil for his eyes, nose, and mouth. And it was my idea to make his bow tie.”
An angry Danny ran toward Alicia’s snowman and tackled it. Unfortunately, his momentum caused him to crash head first into the chain-link fence that was behind the now destroyed snowman.
