Crabka, the slug

My cleaning lady, Evelina - a sweet Polish girl with too much make-up, minimal French and no English has nicknamed Charlotte, Crabka. Crabka, as I understood it, means "little".

Crabka Charlotte has developed a taste for beer. Let me rephrase that. Crabka Charlotte likes beer. Period. Especially Hoegaarden. She's a slug (gardeners understand the metaphor). She'd knock off the whole bottle if I'd let her.

Crabka now prefers to walk. She teeters around like she's had one too many sips of Hoegaarden. That's my girl.
