Nature: nightcrawlers, part 0

Self-tutoring about worms: the tutor mentions a sighting.

I’m in Parksville this week. The other night I had to go out for a razor because I forgot mine at home. It had been a rainy, windy day. Luckily I went out during a lull, walking around a kilometre.

The roads and sidewalks were wet. After a while I walked over what I first thought to be a stick.

“That was a worm,” I thought to myself.

“No,” I continued. “It’s much too big to be a worm.”

“Go back. You’ll see.”

Retracing a few steps, I did see: it was a worm. Believe it or not, I think it was ten inches long.

During the walk I encountered a couple more that were a little smaller, but another one the same size as the first. I’ve never seen worms that big in Campbell River.
