Worms

A perplexing thought came over my mind today and I really felt I must share it.

Today like many days in Rochester, was downcast and wet. For some they shared the laments that if it is not snowing, it is raining. I may agree with them to some extent, however, I have looked out my window to see beautiful green grass and I realize that without the rain I would not be seeing the beauty of green.

ANYWAYS, that's besides the point.

As I was walking to my dreadful 8:00 AM class, I saw worms scattered about the parking lot. Now, historically, I have felt very bad for the worms and I will pick them up and toss them into the grass. However, today I just was looking at them. Then I got thinking about them: I wondered...

When I pick up the worms and toss them into the grass, is that killing them sooner because the water table is so high in the grass? Then I wondered is it worse to get crushed by someones shoe who doesn't see you... Get eaten by a bird. Get ran over by a car. Or to get dried up by the sun if it ever comes back out...

What do you think? If YOU were a worm, what way would you rather die?

HA! Well...I don't know. Dried up would probably be worse...ick.
