I Ate A Snail

9 Dec


Today I ate a snail for the first time. I won’t bother again. It tasted like earth in garlic butter with the texture of one of those rubbery sponges you put make-up on, if you wear make-up. Husb and I went to a posh French restaurant for his birthday meal. His birthday was in August but it took a long time to get a reservation. Apart from the snail, it was lovely but now I’m stuffed and I don’t want to do any drawing. What a lazy mare. Here’s one I did earlier this year, in the rain on Swansea Beach. Now off to bed, like a beached whale in a duvet.

    “Earth in garlic butter”, a perfect description!

    A waste of good garlic butter! Your sketch has really captured the feel of a rainy day walk on the beach.

    Gorgeous little sketch. I’ve never eaten a snail, and now I’m not going to.

      Thank you. I won’t bother again. Basically dirt mixed with PVA glue and dunked into garlic butter.

    I ate a snail in 1978. I haven’t eaten another.

      Wise decision. I won’t be repeating the experience
