Secret Subject Swap - Snowicide

January 2013

Welcome to January's Secret Subject Swap. Again 7 brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.

Here are links to all the sites now featuring Secret Subject Swap posts.  

Sit back, grab a cup and check them all out:

My subject is


 Your kids build a snowman, and the next morning it is gone. In the garage you find snow prints...

It was submitted by: Cognitive Script  - thank you, Dawn!


This totally reminds me of a mystery riddle:


There is a room with no windows, no furniture, nothing, and a man is hung from the ceiling, and a puddle of water is on the floor. How did he die?


If you don't know the answer I'll tell you after this Melting Snowmen Cookies picture which is actually a hint!



So this guy wanted to kill himself. He stepped onto a huge ice cube, put a rope around his neck and attached it to the ceiling. As time went by, the ice started melting, and the rest is history. 

The only thing I have to say is, if this man was so creative in committing suicide the way he did, he probably could have figured out a way to make his life better?

Here's another riddle:

A father and son are in a horrible car crash that kills the dad. The son is rushed to the hospital; just as he’s about to go under the knife, the surgeon says, “I can’t operate—that boy is my son!” 

Huh?

Of course the doctor is his Mom!

Which brings me back to my writing prompt and the missing snowperson case. 

Yes, think about it for a minute, how can we be sure it was a snowman? 

Just as every snowman can't be a hockey player!

I'm pretty sure in this case it was actually a snowwoman! 

A snowlady who wasn't happy about the accessories the kids put on her. I mean, who wants to be wearing a crappy hat and a filthy scarf and be displayed right there in the driveway where everyone can see you? 

That's why the snowwoman escaped. She managed to move into the garage, she started the car and made her way to the mall where she got herself some decent clothes!

Everything went really well until she remembered a meme she had seen the other day:




So she went ahead and treated herself to some magical coffee...

And again, the rest is history. 

Now the original riddle goes as follows:

At the mall's Starbucks they found an iPod playing "Winter Wonderland", a bracelet, sunglasses, a cashmere scarf, a designer handbag, a carrot and two pieces of coal on the floor, surrounded by a puddle of brown slush - what happened?

The good news for us is: a good cup of coffee is not going to kill us, just the opposite, actually, it is the one item on our to-do list we should always, always make sure to accomplish! 




Happy new year, friends, make it a good one! Now head over to my blogger friends' contributions!
