A cartoonish look at life...
I wonder if snails ever feel romantic, don’t you? Oh come on, like the thought never crossed your mind! It’s not like I dwell on it or anything, but snails need love too, right? Snails have been around for a very long time so it figures that they must be attracted to each other, otherwise where would baby snails come from? I seriously doubt that the proverbial “stork” brings them. In fact, I’m too sluggish (pardon the pun) to Google what a stork’s diet consists of* but if you were an expectant snail would you trust a mollusk eating bird to deliver your little bundle of joy? I think not! Of course amongst the snail population there are probably some late bloomers that are a bit on the shy side. They lack confidence, but I’m certain that with the right words of encouragement eventually they’ll come of their shells.
*I did look it up and yes, storks do eat snails.
