My recent plunges into the experimental apocalypse as a plant mutant has made me notice something… It is far too easy to go into being morbidly obese as a plant.
I have a couple of options for food that don’t do too much to my weight, having gone all the way to chloromorphosis, but I have to sleep at some point. Being that sleeping on diggable soil is the only option I have, my guy is essentially eating for more than 7 hours straight every day and that just isn’t very good for his figure. Groot McRoot has to use a pedal machine for 4 hours straight just to slow down his weight gain, and coupled with starvation until he sleeps there is still enough gain per day for him to be Norbit McMorbid within a week. I’m even contemplating having him be on coffee and other stimulants to keep him awake as long as possible until he’s back to normal weight.
Is there some benefit to being a barrel cactus that I’m not seeing? I hope so, otherwise being a plant quickly becomes a weight loss simulator.
