"Honey!" " Help me!" " I'm stuck, and I can't slide!"


The morning started out nicely enough. The sun was shining, the birds were singing. Everything was right with the world, when suddenly, Mrs. Slug heard a faint cry coming from the other side of the house. When she arrived at the scene, Mr. Slug was doubled up, groaning and looking rather strained. He said, "It's an old injury from an incident that involved a car that hit me from behind. My tail has a muscle spasm every now and then." Seeing the agony that her dear husband slug was in, she immediately sprung into action, and within minutes, Mr. Slug was fit as a fiddle and dancing a jig!
Mrs. Slug has a theory that Mr. Slug needs more potassium in his diet, and thereby should eat more bananas. Mr. Slug begs to differ. He has a theory that he needs more ice cream, and that Mrs. Slug should run out to the store and purchase the flavor of his choice so this kind of thing won't happen again!

Bananas can help muscle tightness?A-ha! That's what I've been missing. Thanks, Mrs. Slug!

However, I, too, am partial to ice cream. My all-time favorite is Godiva Chocolate Raspberry Truffle. But they don't make it anymore...

Mr. Slug has seen the replies and likes the banana split idea. However - His Highness insists that the banana shall be, "of perfect ripeness, no green visible on the skin, and just a few spots of brown which indicate that the banana is of the ideal ripeness and texture." The ice cream would be Tillamook brand premium quality, possibly the chocolate mixed with white chocolate and chocolate shavings. Only the finest for our Mr. Slug!

Too cute. I met up with a few slugs in Washington while on a little hike. SLIMY! They get in the creases of your shoes and it stays!
