after supper tonight i looked outside and saw wes playing intently by himself. i walked outside and found him sitting on the ground with 10 snails in a pile beside him.
me: "wes, where did you get all those snails?"
wes: "at school."
(he comes home at 1130. this was 7pm.)
me: "well, where have they been all afternoon?"
wes: "in my pocket."
