a blog about my busy little life as a mom

great big globs of…

SLUGS!

The other night, we were sitting on our porch when this little guy came to say hello.  I thought that I recalled my mom collecting slugs from her garden with a shallow cup of beer.  Thinking that slugs liked beer (and wouldn’t mind getting a little buzz on), I told Lynn to share hers with our new friend.  Pretty soon, he started to swell up and stopped moving.  We weren’t sure if he was drunk or dying, so I googled it.  Well it turns out my mom DID use beer to catch slugs…to kill them! This guy was a goner 😦

Not too long after, a bunch of slugs invaded our space, my interest in them faded, and Lynn started getting freaked out, so we moved inside.  Please observe a moment of silence for the death of our dear slug friend.
