Day 253: even more slime

Day 253:

Seems no matter where I go right now, a giant cube of slime is waiting for me.

It takes a lot of time to get slime off of a sword, and I have no idea what the slime substance might be doing to the blade (or me, since I’m regularly coated in it after hacking apart a slime). So that’s getting old.

On the other hand, maybe it’s a good thing because my knees don’t ache as much anymore. I’m not sure if that’s because I’m spending more time hacking blobs of goo and less time hauling rocks, or whether the green slime goo is some kind of healing substance.

Just to see if I can figure it out, I’ve started piling the green slime in a big box when I finish killing one of them. At first I was afraid that it would reform into a new green slime monster, but so far that hasn’t happened. (Maybe I need some critical mass?)

I’m also a little nervous because the green slime is roughly the same color as the exploding giraffe-corgis, but I’m not sure if that’s because it’s the most natural color of camouflage here (and really, if you’re a three-meter block of green goo, what are you hiding from? Other than me and my sword?) or whether they are somehow related.

Could the goo be the pupae form of the exploding giraffe corgi?
