Squelch was just your average gelatinous blob, you know, squishy and blob-like and although there was nothing wrong with Squelch as such, he didn't have any friends. This of course made Squelch very lonely. One fine and sunny day Squelch needed to go to the bank to.....well do sum banking, so feeling rather cheerful he put on his hat, which is definately no easy task when you're a gelatinous bob, and away he went. As he got down the stairs from his apartment and onto the street a sudden strong gust of wind picked up a heap of leaves and twigs and blew them straight at Squelch. Being the gelationous blob that he was Squelch couldn't mov e very fast and therefore was not able to avoid the debris, as a result leaves and twigs penetrated Squelches gelatinous exterior and ended being stuck inside of Squelch. This didn't much bother Squelch, being a gelationous blob this was a regular occurance, and he continued on his way. Finally making it to the corner of his street after about an hour or so he stopped and looked both ways, as every good gelatinous blob should, to make sure there was no traffic coming and proceeded to cross the road. Getting across the road safely, without the usual being driven through and over, Squelch decided that yes....this would be a good day even if he was full of random random debris. Upon arriving at the bank, which was luckily only down the road and around the corner from his apartment, he waited patiently until sumone either entered or exited the building so the he might be able to slide through before the doors shut. You see this bank didnt have flash new automatic sliding doors and being the gelatinous blob that he was Squelch could not open normal doors. After about 5 minutes a lady exited the building and happened to open the door enough for Squelch to have enough time to slide in. "Yes" thought Squelch "this is going to be a very good day".

This particular day there was alot of people in the bank so it looked as though Squelch had quite a wait ahead of him. He didn't mind but, being the gelatinous blob he was, he was used to waiting and things go slowly and once again patiently he waited. As Squelch waited, a young child waiting in line with his mother began to poke and prod Squelch. "Ewwwwwww" exclaimed the child "It's all squishyyyyyyyyyyy". Squelch would have laughed and told the child "Yes....thats because i'm a gelationous blob" but alas being the gelatinous blob that he was, Squelch had no vocal cords nor a mouth. The child kept on poking and proding until the childs mother noticed and promptly scolded him "Leave that alone! You dont know where it's been!". Squelch took no notice....he had heard it all before. Finally after wat seemed like hours Squelch finally made it to the front of the line. As he was about to approach the tellers window there was a sudden shout from behind him "Everybody get on the floor! This a robbery! No heroics or u all die!" Squelch turned to see four people in balaclavas holding guns and moving towards the tellers. People all around Squelch began to gasp and scream and raise their hands in the air as they got down on the floor. Two men stood and pointed their weapons at the people lying on the floor while the other two approached the teller window where Squelch was. He had not yet dropped to the floor as instructed but the men seemed to take no notice of him. As they arrived at the window a woman laying down next to where Squelch was suddenly got up and made a dash for the door. One of the men standing near Squelch began to turn fire at the woman. Squelch, mustering up everything he could made a dive to get in front of the gun. But alas...Squelch was but a gelatinous blob and the bullet passed right through Squelch, hitting the woman and killing her instantly. Squelch blacked out and when he finally came to there was police and and ambulance officers all over the place. No one seemed to be taking any notice of him and remembering wat had occured Squelch felt a great sadness that he had not been able to save the woman. Squelch feeling extremely depressed left the bank and headed back home. He made his way back to his appartment and upon arriving, proceeded straight to roof. Deciding he just couldn't stand it anymore and he needed to end it all......the sooner the better....and he promptly threw himself 10 stories off the appartment block. But alas, Squelch was but a gelatinous blob, so when he hit the pavment below, apart from a loud splat sound, not much else happened. Feeling even more depressed than before Squelch made his way back inside. He went into his bathroom................................ and flushed himself down the toilet.

THE END

The moral of the story..........Its just no fun being a gelatinous blob
