What eats snails?
He asked in a tone that was worrisome.
I thought what could be worrisome about something that eats snails.
Dead snails are a good thing in a garden.
He was concerned though, and I replied,
"Some kinds of birds, hmm, I don't know. Why?"
I found a very strange feature, he said.
("Feature" is a term that archaeologist use, btw.)
"So let's look at it, okay?"
We went out to the garden. He was pulling weeds and found this.
From a distance, it looked like dead snail shells. Lots of them! Very Weird!
I reached down and scooped them up.
"Tomatillo skeletons," I said.
"Dozens of them."
