SLICES OF LIFE: Slug wars
My research took a turn for the positive when I remembered a critical and game-changing fact about common, garden-variety backyard slugs: they love beer. They love it so much they will actually crawl into a container of beer and drown not only their sorrows, but themselves.

For one thing, the home team actually won, which meant over 29,000 onlookers could tell their kids they saw a victory in the flesh. The other good thing was the way the Twins looked when they did it.

Slices of Life: Buying a car
Her second car was a little red convertible. We bought it when she wasn’t yet old enough for kindergarten. She saved most of the money for it herself — from birthdays and other gifts. Pretty good for a preschooler. This second gem had an operational foot pedal and was battery-powered...
