Sorry, Slimy Thing

Living where we live, we tend to get a nice array of slimy creatures crossing our paths. We regularly find frogs living in our trash cans and in the underside of our hot tub cover. Along with frogs, we often see gooey slugs much larger than we had when we lived across town. One such slug, the biggest slug I've ever seen in this town, really shouldn't have crossed our path…
I was biking Q-Bear to school and we both saw the thing in the path ahead of us. Neither of us really acknowledged it because it was huge and dark and stick like. Apparently once the idea of this thing being a stick popped into Q-Bears head, she decided to run over it. She realized a moment too late that this was not a stick, but a ginormous slug. It was disgusting! The splatting sound and the goo left all over the ground and her bike tires. She felt really bad when she realized she had just completely murdered the biggest slug she'd ever seen. The evidence was still all over her bike.
Just when I thought she was going to start crying, she said the funniest thing, "One thing is for certain… If that were a chinchilla I would not have done that!"
So for all the wild chinchillas roaming our city limits, you are safe from Q-Bear's pink bike of eradication.
