Quick, get the escargot to the party

Frantically readying for a fancy French party, the wife asks the husband if he can run to the store and buy some escargot for the party.  “Sure!”, he says and tears out the door.  On the way he decides to stop at his favorite bar for a quick drink.  After and hour or so, he looks at his watch and suddenly remembers what he was supposed to be doing.  He dashes to the gourmet store , grabs the escargot, and frantically drives home.  When he walks through the door and into his living room, he hears his wife approaching from the kitchen.  He looks around the room for some way out, takes the bag of snails, and quickly throws them on the floor.  When his wife walks into the room he says, “Come on guys, we’re almost there.”
