"Trap" has been looking for a home for some time. I wrote it in response to a challenge in my writer's forum and everybody thought it was funny but it wasn't getting any response from editors. I find 'funny' difficult to place but never mind...Brian Huggett thought it was 'great fun!' and gave it a home in Short Humour. So thank you Brian :)
I would like to point out that no snails were harmed in the writing of this piece.
