Lucky seven (snails)

Over the past few weeks, I’ve noticed our sage developing holes. Lots and lots of holes.

“Something’s eating your sage,” The Unicorn said as we left for work on a recent morning.

“Yeah, yeah, yeah,” I said.

“Perhaps it’s snails.”

I shook my head. I hadn’t seen a snail outside in weeks. Maybe months! It’s hard to say. Besides, The Unicorn stepped on the last one I saw, leaving only a shattered shell behind. Why discuss this further? IT WAS NOT SNAILS.

Or so I thought. Until I got home from work that very same day.

I arrived to a veritable snail convention on our front steps. The Unicorn…he may speak the truth.

    I love snails. We have lots around but they don’t eat much and how can you be mad at them when they have to carry their houses around with them all the time? I love their antennae. So cute.

    Cole, they’re *totally* cute. But they eat my sage!
