If you get a chance to feel me (hey worms need affection, too) you should notice that I am a little bit wet or slimy. It doesn't mean I need a shower . . . my skin is supposed to feel like that. I need moisture to survive.
You will also notice that I do not have bones or arms, or legs, or eyes, or teeth (no one nags me about brushing or flossing). I just feel sort of squishy.
