Mr Buskit, the Birthday Slug

This is S.B.’s birthday slug. He’s based on the pattern for my Valentine bird, with a few alterations. He’s got a little painted wooden birthday present in his “mouth”, and pipe cleaner antennae with painted wooden beads at their ends. His birthday hat is topped with a tiny pom pom.

S.B. had been suggesting for some time that I make a “Huggy Slug” to go with my other huggy creatures.

His name, Mr Buskit, was revealed during the course of a confused driving conversation:

Elizabeth: “What are we waiting for?”

S.B.: “We’re waiting until this bus gets by.”

Elizabeth: “Who’s Mr Buskit?”

S.B.: “What?”

Elizabeth: “We’re waiting until Mr Buskit’s by?”

S.B.: “We’re waiting until this bus gets by us.”

Elizabeth: “Oh.”

S.B.: “Who’s Mr Buskit?”

Elizabeth: “I don’t know. I thought maybe he was a neighborhood pet.”

S.B.: “A neighborhood pet?… Maybe that’s the slug’s name.”

Happy birthday, S.B…from me and Mr Buskit 🙂
