the snowman that never melts

For as long as I can remember living with my parents there has always been a snowman in my back garden, that literally never melts. Even through out the summer and the humid hot air this snowman in my garden always stays up. Our house is separate from the other houses and we don’t really get visitors coming into my house, so nobody really notices the snowman that never melts. My parents built the snowman on thier first year of being married and ever since then, the snowman has always stayed up.

In the summer the snowman looks like a sore thumb and a complete outcast within the fun and joy in the bright yellow hot sun. How it stays up through out the hot season is completely bizarre and I sometimes just stare at it as it has that effect on you. It sort of became part of the family and we just came to accept it as it is and my parents and as well as me, never tried to take it down. Even in the rain the snowman stays up strong and doesn’t melt away or die even, for twenty years, this snowman has been standing in my garden just standing still.

Another unusual aspect about this snowman was that my parents used fruits and vegetables to be used as the snowman’s facial features like the eyes, ears and nose. The fruits and vegetables on the snowman have never rotted away or degraded in the last twenty years. This snowman is definitely unique and when spring, summer and autumn go by the snowman becomes useful again and makes everything more Christmassy.

I remember putting a broken bulb in the snowman’s body and it literally started to light up. I was thoroughly shocked by this and the science of this was clearly upside down, how on earth did the broken light bulb light up? I sometimes see insects, squirrels, slugs, rats and some birds sitting on the snowman. When I take them off the snowman they instantly die and rot so quickly that they must have been dead for months.

Even in the coldest winters when it is snowing really heavily and I try to make another snowman next to the first original snowman in my garden, they all melt away instantly like it was summer. Its always that strange unusual snowman right in the middle of our garden that seems to be immune or immortal to everything it is surrounded by.

One day on a snowy winters day I decided to take a piece of the immortal snowman and I threw it at my father. He laughed and then he all of a sudden fell on the ground and I managed to drag him to his bedroom, with the help of my mother. We didn’t call the ambulance straight away because we didn’t think they would believe us at what we would tell them. My father started to puke snow and his eyes were both snow white and then he started to speak “I am always still always still through out the year and now I can move”

Then my father started to move around randomly and even when he went to the toilet his urine and excretion were all made of snow. His skin was ice cold and me and my mother left him as he was for a while. Then my father threw a piece of that snowman at my mother and she too was now infected. I tried destroying that snowman but my parents would rebuild him again but things became normal again when both my parents went back to normal randomly out of the blue.

Both of them don’t seem to remember much but that snowman is still here in the garden every single day through out the hot and cold days.
