Ha! I was about three fourths of the way through this before I realized it wasn't humans. I had no idea it would be slugs, though. I'm not quite sure how well it fits the theme, but I really liked it. Very creative!

Creative, but...from a Reader's point of view - needs some editing. Suite or suit? Capitalize Creator, words left out, etc...but yes, very creative.

I'm sorry, but...ewwwwwww!

Nah, seriously, you did a great job here, but honestly...ew!

Your creativity never fails to amaze me. Who goes to "slugs" when the topic is "volunteer?" LOL!

Definitely creative take on this topic! I agree with the ewww comments, but I also enjoyed the description of the characters' attitudes and such. Very realistic (for people, anyway LOL).

Whoa--did this one throw me. I was clueless until the very end. Not sure how it relates to the topic, but I enjoyed the creativity of this piece. And, I'll say "eeeooooww" as well. (he he)

Oh, this gave me such a giggle! I didn't catch on until the end. ROFL! I grew up in the land of slugs, WA State! We salted slugs in the back yard. Definetly creative and outside the box. Great ending!

This was very ... um... icky but I can't deny it's well written. I was wondering why they were covered in goo and then when I realized why.... Well, it was very well done. Thanks for sharing it.

I'm one of the ones who was clueless till the end, but that is what made it fun for me. And oh the memories of my salt-obsessed childhood that you brought to the surface of my mind! (My excuse is that I grew up with a bunch of brothers, who introduced me to the fine art of "slug salting.")
I didn't figure this out 'til the end, either! then I laughed at the name, Sluggo. My kind of humor, exactly! I once gave my brother, who was age four, a slug and took the salt shaker and poured salt on it and said , "Eat it." He did. I was a terrible big sister.

And for the third time ...

I read the whole time with a question in my mind... What is this? Then when you mentioned salt, it cracked me up! Slugs. Great names, great humor. Very creative, I like it. Good work. Blessings, Cheri
