This summer, I have been introduced to one of the lower forms of life: slugs. Our particular variety of slug is orange and if it gets squished the residue is bright clementine. I have learned not to squish slugs. The bright residue gets into my fuzz and stains! Then I'm walking around with an orange smear on myself.
Because it has rained so much, slugs are everywhere. Mommy hates them too. Mommy doesn't hate anything, but she has been driven low by slugs. She tries to kill them with anti-slug sprinkles. I don't think these work, but it gives Mommy a sense of satisfaction to put them all around in the garden. Still, the slugs come back. Just today one got on my eyebrow. It was sticky and it wouldn't flick off when I shook. I had to go inside and let Mommy get the slug off with the dog cleaning cloth. Yuck.
I decided that although Cupcake is prowling around the woodpile seeking chipmunks, I am going to stay inside and and have a morning snooze.
