Having had a bit of a mission to find a sealable bag to fit the snake into, I finally got to do my first toy drop for The Toy Society in Victoria Park. I picked a bench on the main drag, tied the snake to the railing in a casual manner and grabbed a quick picture before running away giggling. I don’t know why but it all felt a bit cheeky.
The crochet snake snapped in the wild.
I set off to the supermarket but couldn’t resist passing the spot on the way home to see if he had been found. As I got nearer the bench, my heart sank as I could still see the bag tied to the railing even though the park was quite busy and it been there for an hour or so. I sat down on a bench opposite to try and decide whether to rescue Mr Snake or not and generally wondering if people were too suspicious to take ‘something for nothing’ at face value. I was considering my options when a little boy and his mum came by, spotted Mr Snake and rescued him. I was delighted as by pure chance I got to see the discovery as well as having had the pleasure of doing the drop. I am off to plan for the next one now when I will do better at leaving the discovery in the lap of the gods.
