Introducing the OT mascot: Mr Snail

Ok…well…I am having trouble sleeping…so instead I was on StumbleUpon, and came across SumoPaint and am enthralled, and I made this because what else is there to do at 1am? Don’t answer that, I actually have about fifty thousand productive things I could do, but shhh. I think the snail should be the mascot of OT because A) you can make it look like OT and B) often times I feel like a patient has a snail parallel! Slow, plodding, but determined…that’s just with ambulation! Man, if we got into the psychosocial aspects of retracting when irritated, etc, we’d be here all night!

PS: A few days ago I went back to my first pediatric clinic to say hello, and a little boy with Asperger’s was so glad to see me, but mostly he wanted to know where Mr. Snail was (a puppet). I told him Mr Snail was vacationing in Hawaii with my grandmother.

*I’d like to point out I have an obsession with (fake) snails and I think they are awesome creatures and I mean no offense. Just sayin’.
