a long time ago i made a deal with snails not to eat them if they promised not to eat me under the cloak of darkness while i slept.
it was the result of watching some japanese nuclear-radiation-induced, giant crustacean, horror movie.
i was sold on the idea that this could in fact happen.
so far they have kept their part of the bargain, but i gotta tell ya, those rascals smell real tempting good when drenched in garlic and stuff.
but a deal is a deal, no matter how unfair to one party.
