"A clean slug is an effective slug!" That said, "An effective slug is not afraid of a little dirt!"
There is nothing worse than waking up early on a frosty morning to find that the water heater has failed and you will be taking a cold shower. This happened to Mr. Slug recently, and he was not a happy slider. Mr. Slug woke up all of the sleeping slugs and told them to apply as much warm belly surface as possible to the outside of the haplesss household appliance. The slugs did as they were told, and in about 30 minutes, Mr. Slug found himself happily soaping up his mantle for another days work. Order was restored to Slug's Rest, which had a very positive effect on the rest of Mr. Slug's business day! Mr. Slug felt so satisfied by the warm shower that he was giddy with happy feelings and greeted everybody he met that day with a hearty "Howyadoin!" and a spritely flick of the tail. This created an optimum condition for doing a brisk business.....At his morning meetings, Mr. Slug's customers were pleasantly accosted with the fresh, airy scent of Irish Spring soap upon his person. They were enchanted with his easy, breezy sales approach. In fact, he felt so good that week that that he made three extra sales, which amounted to a significant increase in slime to be deposited in to the sluggy bank account! Mr. Slug always gives back to his community, so he rewarded each of the helpful slugs with a fresh bottle of foaming slug wash and a loofah back scratcher with a nice long wooden handle for those hard to reach areas of the tail.
Hello gentle readers! I am Mrs. Slug the wife of Mr. Slug, every morning I draw the cartoons on my husband's lunch napkin.
At 6:30am, I make a P B & J, a bag of chips, a can of mandarin oranges, Mr. Can Opener, who you shall meet if you follow this blog long enough... spoon, bag of peanuts, a bag of cut vegetables likely to return uneaten, and a Little Debbie Snack Cake, usually a Zebra Cake, plus a thermos of hot coffee. Before Mr. Lunchbox, I employed Mr. Lunchbag, who has been needed a few times when the lunchbox disappeared.
