I always avoided eating snails because of all the times I stomped on them in the garden!
But one night, as a nice restaurant in San Francisco where we were regulars and enjoyed a good rapport with the waiters, kidded with them etc. I told our waiter that I was ready to try escargot---- finally.
Big mistake---- for after waiting for what we thought was too long we asked the waiter if there was a problem. He said----- I'm sorry, but the cook is out back looking for some! GAG!
But I valiantly ate them when the did come and liked them but haven't had them many times since.
