My friend, Sam, used to keep snakes in his aquarium filled with pink stones. I never thought it looked like the natural habitat of the snake, but I also knew that Sam was not a boy I could argue with successfully.

It almost looked like it was waving the flower to get my attention. Save me; it seemed to beg. How could I resist?
