i have been sitting across the table from the snail for around 15 minutes. i am staring him out.
the snail has retracted into his shell and has not come out for 10 minutes.
like so many before it, the disagreement that lead to this situation had been created because of a woman.
she likes me - i am sure of it. what has the snail got that i don't have? she can't like him. i might be in love with her.
the snail is still not moving and it's getting late. but i am not going to back down over this.
the snail comes out of his shell and casually slimes off of the table.
i think i might have been staring at the wrong snail.
it was definitely the wrong snail.
i feel so stupid.
four hours in the future i am going to catch the snail having sex with her and crush him in a fit of jealous passion.
2 months later i will be in prison.
good bye life.
