The Day I Threw the Slug Out

Well yesterday I finally did it!!! I threw the slug out.
This snail had been crawling around our bathroom for the past week...I jus kept thinking it would leave,...but all it did was get under my skin!!! I think I first noticed this slimy creature one rainy day on a tile of the bathroom. The next day it was near the sink and on another day I found it on a jar of body scrub... Ugggh!!! It even crawled under the seat of the toilet...One day I nearly stepped on it. Just imagine if i had squashed that mass of flesh n mucus?? I was relieved I din step on it. I poured some water and it quickly curled into a mass ...But yesterday I go to wear my lens and lo and behold ;perched on top of my lens case, it gleamed. The rage I felt inside could not be described. I was mad & panicky . I took a piece of paper and got it or rather shoved it off the pristine case....then I somehow got it on to the paper. I ran without dropping it- to the top of the 4th floor, went out to the balcony which faced the "Forest" and threw it.I let out a wild scream...I thought it touched me for an instant...Thus it flew down to the forest, the paper behind it.... I rushed back to the bathroom and furiously washed my lens case with soap and water. My disgust & rage slowly subsided. But I couldn't forget it. Perhaps it hadn't fallen to it's death after all.. Must have thought I was earlier in a smooth green place and now I am in a rougher and bumpy place. But somewhere in the back of my mind, I know he's still out there...crawling slowly but surely...

I saw 2 slugs later on, one perched on a drawer handle. It pointed it's antennae thingies at me like" Throw me down again"...Another time there was one taking a slow walk on the wash basin......Revenge of the slugs or what???
