A mob of snowmen, complete with black top hats and striped knit scarves, gathered outside the shopping mall. They were furious that management would not turn the heat down inside the building so that they could do their Christmas shopping too.
Icey, one particularly unruly snowman, known for his bad behavior, climbed on top the building and began tossing carrots on the customers as they entered the door. He laughed uncontrollably as he jettisoned the carrots down.
The police were in a quandary. They had no idea what to do. They didn’t want to arrest the snowmen in front of the children. They spent the morning trying to figure out how to handle this icy situation.
The sun came out early that day and it grew unseasonably warm. The temperature rose. It was nearly 70 degrees by noon and the problem melted away.
(Author’s note: As you can see these three words got the best of me–words: mob, jettison, behave)
