I did stop to ask the snail where it was going and it informed me that it felt like it needed a slurpee from 7-11. I pointed out that it was a quite chilly day, but that didn't seem to bother the determined snail...and he continued his trek. I considered picking him up to help him along but decided against it and continued on my way.
I have a stuffed snail, do you? I think everyone should have a stuffed snail. Stuffed snails rule.
