Today's Inktober prompt is Armour.
Armour. Protection. Hard coverings. ..like Shells.
Snails have shells!
Your average garden variety snail has a pretty weak shell. Numerous times I have found myself almost stepping on one, my foot makes contact with its shell, then I realize I'm about to make a big gooey mess and I quickly hop over it. Yet its shell still cracks! Aww, poor thing!
Maybe their shells need to be harder, bigger, more initimidating.
Maybe they need to append Legos on it so when people step on it, they'll be really sorry.
I only had time to messily sketch out these ideas.
