This picture is based on true events. I ate a lettuce leaf yesterday with a giant worm on it. I almost ate the worm (Bruce) but I noticed him just before I tasted him. Bruce looked at me, and I could tell he was frightened.

Coming that close to death has made him appreciate his life so much more. I think he is very thankful. I keep him in a small yogurt jar now.

He is eating an artichoke stem.

I wonder if he will always be a worm or if he will one day become a dusty winged butterfly. If that happens, I may change his name.
