The trail of snails

1 Comment

Yeah, so, sometimes I take BART to the West Oakland station and walk to the office.

It’s about a 30-minute walk. There’s a greenway down the center of Mandela Parkway, and if you stick to that, it’s a nice, little walk.

Here's a Google Map shot for you.

Here’s a Google Map shot for you. It’s pretty OK, right?

It rained yesterday and last night, so the snails were trying to work their way across the cement path as they tend to do when it rains. I say “trying” because someone walked along the path and stepped on all the snails! My entire walk was littered with snail carcasses. It was sad and gross.

What I’m trying to tell you is that there is a serial killer on the loose in West Oakland. The trail of snails is clue. There’s some serious “True Detective” shit going on. Consider yourself warned.

I'm a writer/mocker/mother in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, talk smack, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.
