I imagined what it would be like to have eyes, arms, a nose and a happy mouth – smiling to all the children walking past or playing in the snow. I had been lying here on the ground since Thursday not being touched at all, but today was the day my wish came true. A little girl and boy came up to me this morning with their family holding spades and shovels; I knew I would be turned into a magnificent snowman. Quickly, they started shovelling me into three big balls, one was placed in the centre of some grass and was patted into shape. After a while, three of the family members walked off but the rest stayed to work on the me – I was watching them as they gently sculpted me into a dazzling snowman.
The three other family members came back (holding several things) and started to place a smooth, goldfish coloured carrot onto my face for my nose and lace black buttons for my eyes and mouth. Two twigs made my arms, and a scarf around my neck finished me off. I imagined what it would be like to have eyes, arms, a nose and a happy mouth and now I had it all.
