On The Subject of Snails

This is a snail.


He is quite friendly.

Say hello, little snail!


Aw, isn't he cute?

Still - for all that - he is a snail in transition.

Transition! Conflict! Drama! The core of what we call narrative - plot!


He is excited, you see.


He is doing a dance!


He was sad, because of lost love. You couldn't see it, but when he said hello - little snail tears fell from each eye-stalk.


But he has just made a realization.


His saxaphone can win back his lost love! Can and will - perhaps even - must!


Hear those aching, poignant chords projected from his snail-a-phone!

How could any snail resist such magic?


They cannot!

Yay, snails!
