Guess I won't eat worms

When Osaki was small, he had us all watching PBS television shows. One of them, forgive me, for blocking out from my memory the title of the show, had a song that I actually thought was funny for kids to be singing.

Nobody likes me, every body hates me. Guess I'll go eat worms. First one was slimy, second one was grimy. Third and fourth came up.

I guess the lesson of the song was that worms should not be ingested, even if you feel as though the world has turned against you.

I guess people in Hong Kong didn't get PBS, or the message that worms can be harmful. I always thought the idea of having some type of worm in my digestive system eating away at my innards was disgusting. I mean, they can eat, and eat, and eat, and never really ever stop. What would that mean for your insides? They would be gone and you would never see it coming until the worms ate their way back out of your body.

If you want to lose weight, do it the simpler ways. Change your diet. Exercise. Adopt/have about 7 kids then reenroll in a university to obtain two concurrent degrees while still working your full time job and trying to make sure those children are ok and getting to their innumerable extracurricular activities. You could also have some type of gastrointestinal bypass surgery.

But please, unless you are composting or working in a garden, stay away from worms and worm eggs.

  1. Chris sings that song all the time. His mom used to sing that song to him or his sisters whenever they would unnecessarily pout


I share my thoughts and would love to read your thoughts, too.
