One day, while on vacation, she found a teeny tiny snail shell and showed her grandma. Who pointed out that the "baby" snail was still inside.
So the little girl, with all the innocent love that little girls have, decided that this snail must be her pet.
And so she named the snail "Shiny".
And she loved Shiny, who was, apparently, a girl snail.
She put Shiny on a piece of paper, and carried her around everywhere. She refused to put the snail down, because as we all know, babies need constant attention.
|see the dot on the brochure? that's the snail.|
Also, the shirt was a total coincidence
|Shiny, in all her glory|
And the next morning, the little girl discovered that Shiny was gone. She had found her way home to her own mommy & daddy. I'm sure of it.
