The Slimiest Creature On Earth

Photo by Susan Alison

Question from 5-year-old granddaughter:

“Do you know the slimiest creature on earth?”

Thinks: Sleazebag Guy where I worked in the 1970s — antediluvian 1970s attitudes. But don’t cross swords with women who work in a 1970s lab — scant safety regs, access to electric shock devices, indelible ink, and nasty chemicals. Sleazebag Guy came to regret knowing us.




Wow! Did you notice that? It was your day flying by. This publication is your place to enjoy stories of 150 words or fewer about plants and people, wild animals and pets, gardens and food, how-to and how-not-to — written to inform and delight. Did I mention humor?
