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.

  1. Dammit, I was eating! Ugh. Ugh ugh ugh…..

    Looks like a caterpillar to me.

    Just protein though, right? That’s what I’m going to tell myself so I can finish eating lunch. *gag*

  2. Oh, my good God. What is that? I’m not going to suggest what I think it is because I’d need another look and that would require scrolling back up and I’m just not doing that. No how, no way. So exactly how thankful are you that you didn’t shovel that thing in your mouth along with a handful of nuts and M&M’s? Gah!

  3. I’m sorry I had to laugh at that because he literally got some real “Mountain Trail”, bugs and all

  4. @ Mark – No, I didn’t contact the company. Sometimes an online discussion is all that it takes to bring attention to the company.
