A photo essay by Ben

Ben came in the house today and said, “I found a slime in the backyard, but I broke it.” Which translates to “I found a slug and squeezed it to death.” We had a discussion about respecting small creatures. And then we discovered that slug slime doesn’t wash off hands easily. While I was scrubbing his hands, Ben noticed my point-and-shoot camera on the counter and asked if he could take pictures. Hoping it would help him spend his time in a less destructive manner, I said yes. Later, I took a look at the pictures.

The first picture he took was of the poor, deceased slug. Sorry, dude, you slimed into the wrong place at the wrong time.
