my youngest thinks our car needs a better hood ornament. It is a Buick, Custom Regal. I can't blame him, though I did make it clear that no one would be fooled. So, e.v.e.r.y. time we go to another junk shop (aka flea market) we have to scour the place for a Mercedes hood ornament "just in case".
Yesterday, while shoveling out the driveway for the third time this week, youngest gets an idea to make a small scale snowman hood ornament. He stuck it on pretty good, too. I had forgotten about it until I had to drive both boys to their rehearsal. Oldest laughed himself silly the whole way to the theatre. They must have told everyone about said snowman, too, because when we went to pick them up, the whole cast flocked to the stairs, hoping to catch a glimpse of the coolest car in town.
alas, snowman jumped ship just as we were leaving the driveway.
I am truly sorry that he lost his head. If only he had known how many faces cracked a smile when they saw him earlier.
I guess it was worth the ride.
