Why I'm called Snails

I've had a few requests recently to enlighten you all on why I am called "Snails." But I fear you will all be very disappointed. Because there's really not a whole lot to it. So don't complain if you get bored with this story. Here goes.

My real name is Abigail. When my sisters and I were little, they called me Abisnail... merely because it rhymes. My friends tried other things, like Abbawhale, Crabby Abby, and my sister Rachael sometimes referred to me as Rotten Abble. (We had apple trees growing up, and the rotten apples REALLY smell when you step on them). Oh the memories, the hurt, the pain, the tears.... **sigh**

So anyway, none of them really stuck except for Abisnail. When my older sister Bekah's boyfriend, now husband, started coming around a few years ago, he shortened Abisnail to Snails.

And the name is now fitting because I am quite "snailish." You can read about that here.

And that is why I am called Snails! See? I told you it's not a great story!

Tomorrow is recipe time. It is a YUMMY, easy, dinner idea. We could all use more of those.

I do not remember ever calling you abisnail, abbawhale, or rotten abble? I told you I was an accident and I should have been born 3 years earlier so I could enjoy these fun memories with you girls. Sigh I was merely just a sperm and an egg. I remember Crabby Abby though. That was my favorite ;) xoxox
