a worm

I accidentally picked up a worm today.

I was at the Horton's drive-thru (of course), and it was very early, at the start of a long, busy Sunday (of course), and my window was down. There was a tiny little curled up twig on the edge of the open window, and not being fully awake, I casually picked it up to drop it outside.

That's when my mind registered that I was holding a cold, wet, curled up worm.

Gross.

Odd place for a worm. I wonder if a bird picked it up from the ground and accidentally dropped it while flying by.

I'd rather pick up a worm than a spider.
