My friend went on and on. I interupted her.

"Excuse me, I asked you why you are afraid of snails! Get on with it!" She frowned and said

...it was time to panic.  This whole time we had the tang, no one brought out any rice krispie cake.  you just can't have tang without rice krispie cake.

i quickly forgot about the snails and busied myself in the kitchen, marshmallow goo was soon everywhere.  and i thought to myself, this could be a fire hazard...

....and it was. A big fire started, but was put out before any major damage was done. I thought that just  MAYBE  the snails all died from the smoke of the fire, but I was wrong. I looked and the snails had multiplied. They were everywhere, plus some other things were everywhere, too. They looked like...........

I couldn't move! I began to notice just how hidious snails are. With their ugly grey shells and oozzy bodies. And since that day, I have never been able to look at a snail the same way again. My house was destroyed, my boyfriend was a dog, and I was living on the moon. All because of snails. So you really can't believe me for being afraid of them.

Never be normal!

"Is that true?" I asked.
"Actually, no," she replied, with a shrug. "They just wrecked my lettuce."

"wrecked your lettuce?" I replied as I walked into the other room in order to be sure there were no snails following us.
