Mondays are for memories – The snail

Have you noticed how humans generally hate Mondays and tend to do everything thinking about how the weekend was so nice and why is it that Monday’s already here?

In French, humans have a funny expression to illustrate the phenomenon. When they are asked “how are you today?” on a Monday, they reply “Comme un lundi !” meaning “Like on any Monday!” which would really mean “how do you expect me to be doing? It’s Monday!”

Frankly, I don’t understand that: Monday is just another day. But… that gave me an idea for a series of posts.

Before I had my own blog, I had my own Facebook page (I couldn’t have a Facebook profile because of my name… go figure!), and even before, my own Twitter account.

On my Facebook page I shared some pictures of me that I liked, when I was still living in France. So I thought I would share some of them with my new furriends. And hopefully those who have already seen them will enjoy seeing them again.

So Mondays are for memories (of the past weekend, or the past year). And my first post in the series is about my encounter with a snail (snails are for how humans look on Mondays). Hope you like them!

Rain brought something interesting: a snail!

Wow, it’s moving slowly

What’s the smell of snails?

Hmmm… is it really moving?

Hello snail


A little too slow for me…

Maybe we can play.

Can you roll?

  1. I’ve never seen one of those things before! My human needs to bring me one. My human loves escargot and I want to find out if I would like them myself! (I don’t care if it is “not the same thing!”)

    • My human had brought me the thingy from outside too, but we were both disappointed a bit (too slow to do anything with, and really Sweetie, there’s not much to eat inside). But the experience can be fun the first 30 seconds.

  2. Well, I have to say that Garfield also hates Mondays. But I love your posts idea. Especially the one where you yawn…makes me yawn too. Oh..but it’s still Monday. Take care Texas, tomorrow’s Tuesday. :)

  3. Oh I bet it was fun to watch that thing slime its’ way across the paper… Mom (and Dad) both like to EAT escargot – me? – not so much! It’s a rather fascinating thing to watch though isn’t it – – the kind of “fascinating” that lets you take a nap or two while the snail moves a couple of inches! HAHAHAHA
