Something Nasty Wriggles My Way

I stopped at the local Wal-Mart this morning to buy a jug of Ibuprofin to try and get this friggin’ pain in my chest to go away. Whilst checking out, I noticed a bag of trail mix and decided that I would grab some. I had not had any in a while.

I opened them up just a little while ago and began to savor the nutty, salty, sweet goodness. I let the taste develop in my mouth for as long as I could before having to swallow it. I grabbed another handful, and another. Before I knew it, I had eaten approximately 1/4 of the contents of the bag.

It was in the next handful that I noticed something peculiar. Staring at me from in between two raisins was this dehydrated worm like creature. The length and girth of it reminds me of a leech, but the ridges on it remind me of an earthworm.

I gradually put the handful of worm laden goodies down and fetched a camera.
