Chapter Being slippery

Yourself can be slippery. The player is not slippery.

Instead of rubbing motor oil on yourself:
    if the player is clothed:
        say "That would surely ruin your clothes. Mom would never get the oil out.[if the creature is present][one of][your mom joke][or][stopping]";
        say "You pour the oil on you and douse yourself with it. Every inch of yourself. Every drop of the oil gets used. The result is one slick and slippery Scotty.[if the creature is present][line break][c]My eyes! Is there no mercy for my poor retinas?' [the creature] cries.";
        remove the motor oil from play;
        now the player is slippery.
