"i'd like to return these snails, please."

mmm-hmmmmm. the snails went back to petsmart this afternoon.

turns out that our $1.49 aquatic snails were so not the right ones for the project - which was simply to observe them as they eat, and...whatever the hell else snails do. poop? [shrug]


anyway, the kid reported that the classroom was indeed crammed full with about a zillion snails, all brought in by other students looking for easy extra credit. and hers were the ONLY ones that resided within a watery home. heh.


so the teacher told her to come back after the last bell to retrieve her erroneous slugs, and i was glad to hear that she made a point to ask if she was still going to earn those extra points (she did). knowing her, i just wouldn't have been shocked if she'd taken off and forgot all about it.


and we took our $8.06 and got chicken teriyaki bowls for dinner.

  1. chicken teriyaki sounds much tastier than rubbery snails.
