Snail’s Pace

I have a pet snail. It’s name is Aberdeen. I take it for walks. We watch TV together. Aberdeen’s glass cage is right next to my bed. Every night before I go to sleep, I say, “Good night, Aberdeen.”

My family says that I need companions beyond Aberdeen. They say it’s unhealthy that I spend Christmas with just the company of my pet. They worry that I might be in some state of mental deconstruction.

But I’ve learned from Aberdeen that we have very thin shells protecting us and we need to do what’s simple and easy, and that this makes us happy.
