Driving down the road a couple of weekends ago, Riff and Noah were playing "Slug Bug" when they spotted Volkswagon Beetle's. Noah called out, "Slug Bug red - No hit back's!" after a 5 year old sized slug to his Papa's arm, then he was quiet for a few seconds.
"Bana? I don't really remember what a slug is." I replied that a slug is a slimy bug with no bones - just like a snail without a shell. "oh yeah! I remember! What do slugs do?" "Hmmm", I said. "Well, they come out when it rains and when your garden is growing they come out at night and eat all of your plants." This provoked a concentrated look on Noah's face, then he asked, "Don't the spider's eat them? 'Cause spiders are good and they eat the bad bugs." I told him that no, spiders don't really eat slugs because they're too little. The slugs are bigger than the spiders.
"Well, Bana, why can't they just eat them one bite at a time?"
