The other day, I was weeding my little herb garden, and I noticed a huge nail eating my herbs! I immediately took him out and put him on one of our flagstone pavers.
|The little guy. FYI, I'm pretty sure the dark stuff is his poo.|
He looked pretty old because his shell was all worn and broken in some areas. He must have had a hard snail life.
|Figuring out his new world out of the herb garden.|
I grabbed my camera because he looked pretty cool. We had our little photo shoot, he slimed away into the grass, and I started playing ball with my dog, Reeses.
|Does he have eyes, or just antennae that sense his environment?|
Well, um, lets just say I forgot where he was. I stepped on him, not with all of my weight, and I immediately pulled my foot off.
|Almost to safety, right? NOT.|
I inspected him, and he looked intact.
But I guess he wasn’t, because I found his shell in the same place two days later.
I try to appreciate nature, and look what I did!
Anyone else done anything like that?
Song of the Post: Girl Next Door by Saving Jane. The band is from Ohio and I was living there when the song was on the radio. A few years later, Taylor Swift’s song You Belong With Me had a very similar theme. Sometimes, Saving Jane would perform their song as a mash-up with Taylor Swift's because they were so similar.
On merit alone, ignoring that Taylor is now a mega star, which song do you like best for the "girl next door theme"?
And for fun, I stumbled on the hilarious video of Taylor Swift performing the song with a Japanese singing group. Funny and unexpected.
