["Snail picked up speed. I feared the worst"]
His eyes pointed straight toward me. I asked myself, "What's the workshop's emergency drill in a case like this?"
"Head for the hills!" I shouted and reached for the keys to my '64 Volkswagen.
["But the snail blocked my retreat to the hills"]
"He's asking for it now," I shouted. I initially back away, then put the Volks into first gear, revved the engine and hit the juice. The smell of hot petrol filled my nostrils as I bolted toward the snail and the shop door at about 20 km. per hour.
Only skillful driving and a near miss averted disaster for us both.
