I had a snail.  His name was Gandalf. (Granted, snails are hermaphrodites and he has laid eggs, so technically he’s an “it,” but I don’t like that pronoun. I wish there was a third-gender pronoun in English. “They” doesn’t cut it for me.)  He loves to explore and is very active most of the time when I get him out of his container.

Sure, I know he can’t understand me, but I still have fun talking to him.  :)

The reason I don’t have him anymore is because I moved to Canada and even in the States it’s illegal to take snails across state borders. :( It’s sad. I miss him.

What's happened to your snail since you left xem? Anyone taking care of 'em?

Mother nature is. I released xem into the wild! It's where xe really belongs anyway.

Oh! Well, that's ok. I didn't think your parents would... with any kind of joy.. or want, take care of them. If you ever visit, maybe you'll find the offspring nomming on the neighbor's gardens.

My parents probably would have taken good care of him, but they wouldn't see the point. It's a snail, not a cuddly pet. :)
