  4. It was the nickname of a guy who used to hunt with my dad.
    He was a piece of work.
    Sluggo was lactose intolerant, but would drink a half-gallon of chocolate milk and eat a box of powdered donuts (did I mention he weight 250-plus?) and then have to crap. He was also (I swear) scared of the dark. So at hunting camp he would crap right outside the tent or camper.
    I lost count how many times the old man, after stepping into one of Sluggo's piles, pierced the early-morning silence with a screaming stream of curse words.

    Suffice to say ... Sluggo wasn't much of a hunter/outdoorsman.

    He wore camo coveralls. He was so fat he wouldn't walk down hills - this is West Virginia, so ... yeah. Instead, he would sit on his fat ass and slide down to the bottom. He went through the ass-end of a pair of coveralls about every year.

    And ... and ... the best part ... he shit his pants.
    He's a man - with a wife and two kids, and pretty successful in business (chemical sales) - who shit his pants on more than one occasion!

    Once we were scouting for a place to hunt. I was in the back of my dad's truck. He and Sluggo were up front. Suddenly, Dad slams on the brakes and I go flying, face-first into the rear windshield. Dad jumps out of the truck, curse words flying.
    "Geez, I thought it was a fart," Sluggo said waddling out of the passenger's side.
    Sluggo had been drinking milk and eating donuts when he shit his pants in my dad's truck; an old truck with a bench seat.
    And in the process of cleaning himself, got shit all over the front bumper and tires. Dad GOES BALLISTIC!
    There I am - 12, 13, watching my dad lose his shit; red-faced, veins bulging curse words flying - and seeing a grown man - in 30s - who just crapped his pants. I have never laughed so hard in my live. To this day, it still makes me LOL.

    That's Sluggo to me.
