The Intricacies of "Slug Bug"

The other day my mom and I were in the car and I spotted a Volkswagon beetle and, very lightly, hit her on the arm and said "slug bug". I don't know why. I was feeling silly I guess. She had never heard of the game so I explained:

"When we were little, we used to watch the cars go by with [friend's names] and when a Beetle passed we'd say 'slug bug' and hit each other in the arm."

So she shook her head like she understood. A few minutes later we stopped at a red light next to the same Beetle and she knocked the crap out of me and said "slug bug".

"What? You can't hit me for the same car." I explained to her. "I already got you for that one. If you hit someone for the same car or hit them for a car that isn't a Beetle, they get to hit you ten times."

"That's not fair. I didn't know that. You're making up these rules!"

"Whatever. Just don't do it again"

I saw another Volkswagon and slug bugged her again. This made her nervous and soon she was hitting me for every car that passed that even slightly resembled a Beetle, just so I wouldn't hit her. I finally just screamed "I don't want to play slug bug anymore!!" I have a bruise on my arm (granted I bruise easily) from the ordeal.

Today, we were watching TV. I was sitting on the couch next to her and a VW Beetle drove across the screen. I had completely forgotten the Slug Bug incident and I remarked "cool convertible Beetle" to which she knocked the holy hell out of me screaming "slug bug". I tried to explain that seeing a Beetle on TV doesn't count. She just doesn't get it. :-)
