    I had a dream where snails were all gathered in a place, like a shallow hole on the ground. Small small snails, then one very big one that started eating the small snails. I was walking by with a friend, and my friend stopped to pick the snail, I told her to drop it, and seeing that the snail was small, she dropped it and we walked away. That was how I woke up. Pls I need interpretation.
