Here's the same thing as a short zen koan because that's what it fucking felt like:
A trader is making his daily rounds on a bumpy road and at the end of his day, notices a small snall on the side of his cart with a long trail leading from underneath the cart. Not wanting to disturb it for all the work it had done, he did not move it from his cart before leaving. Upon arriving at his home he rushes to see if the snail made the journey and "Ahh" he smiles brightly in relief. Overjoyed in himself, he takes a step away from the cart and feels the crushing of a snail hidden in the grass below the cart outside of his home. "Oh."
