The weather this weekend was amazing: highs in the low 80s, a true feeling of spring (well, minus the khamseen’y haze in the air on Saturday morning). Unfortunately for me, the warm weather has also brought new life to my snail issues.
They are everywhere: I am working from home today, and I can see ten through my salon window without even moving my head.
I don’t mind them when they perch on the walls, but when they spread themselves out on the ground they look more like slugs. Slug, ugh: there’s a reason those two words rhyme. And the goo trails on the ground are … quite something.
When H went out for a wander in my yard yesterday afternoon, I tried to warn him. Watch out for the snails, I called after him.
What snails? he called back. I don’t see any.
Ignorance is bliss, I thought to myself, happy that he was enjoying a snail-free yard.
HOW MANY SNAILS ARE THERE? H yelled a few minutes later. Apparently the bliss didn’t last :).
