Mr. Slug puts some bite into his business plans!

Yay! Its winter break and Mr. Slug is using his vacation time for the development of a new invention, which will be of great monetary help to pay for the large and imposing stack of textbooks he will need for the next school term.

The idea was hatched during last months flight over the country. He looked out upon the rolling heath below and thought to himself, "I wish I had a faster way to complete my morning routine, which has become mundane and boring. I need a fantastic new way to start the day.....Hmmmm......If only I had a machine that would assist me like that farm implement down there in the field, I could get out the door and to class more quickly....Hmmmm....

Mr. Slug began working on the blueprint to his new machine as the holiday season kicked in. He interviewed shoppers in the isles of stores in his neighborhood and soon learned that many slugs do not spend enough time brushing the rasp, (also known as a tooth). 

Mr. Slug has a dentist which he is going to visit on Monday morning. If the dentist finds that Mr. Slug has not been doing a good job of diligent oral hygiene, Mr. Slugs dentist will smile at him menacingly and say quietly, "You only need to brush the tooth you want to keep."  It is a very intimidating and uncomfortable thing to hear.

Thus, Mr. Slug has been busy in preparation for said dental event. Drum roll please...."Introducing the New Auto-Tooth 100!"  Mrs. Slug is assisting Mr. Slug in a demonstration of the machine today, and it seems to be doing the job beautifully. Just a dab of spinich paste on the brush, a flick of the switch, and you are off to the races with a rasp so clean, your wife can see her reflection in it!

"Bravo Mr. Slug! I'll take two!"

I hope Mr. Slug makes millions of $$ off of the sale of his invention! I know how much $$ school books cost!

Dearest Mrs and Mr Slug !

You slid this post in there while I was in the worst of the last days of Christmas season madness... and I'm just starting to catch up now ! How I've missed your ever refreshing sketches and tantalizingly slippery texts that can only help slugs everywhere to smile and enjoy their otherwise sluggish days...

I too wish the two of you great success with your new invention, may it lead to all slugs sporting the shiniest of rasping rasps !

Glad also to hear that the scholarly undertakings of Mr Slug seem to be progressing well, to see any slug improve himself or herself through higher education is truly heart warming.

May your holidays at Slug Rest be of the happiest kind, blessed with an abundance of lettuce and spinach and collard greens and everything else tasty that slugs love to nibble.

Slide well, right into 2011 !!!
