I am a Sloth A Slob A Slug

I am a sloth, a slob, a slug During the summer when school is out. I move in slow motion from chair to couch to bed. I am in the throes of binge eating – sugar, sugar, sugar, sugar, sugar and salt. pie, cake, cinnamon rolls, pie, cake and chips. I am sluggish. I have gained eight pounds in the eight pounds I have been home I can barely waddle from the living room couch to bed. I am wearing an oversized purple and red mumu now. You could fit a small calf in here with me but I may grow into it. I am a sloth, a slob, as slug During the summer when school is out.
