Bill Smith, who would probably prefer not to be called Mr.
Shira even though he is married to her, is a mathemagician. (Imagine
someone who has a Ph.D. in mathematics with a sense of playfulness
and humor about it....) He likes to pass time in restaurants
waiting for his food by doodling. He used to doodle cartoons
of snails to please his favorite wife (yes, there's a story behind
that!), and this is one of his creations.
Unfortunately, Bill doesn't share his wife's passion for belly
dancing, and sometimes feels like a belly dancing widower. He'd
much rather cut a rug with her doing just plain old social dancing
at a local club.
