one time, when i was in elementary school, i saw a kid eat a fried worm.

we had just read the book, in some little class they had us gathered in, and once it was done they sent us outside so we could jaunt around and form groups that would ridicule one another, with squealed taunts and frequent displays of running away.

there was a paved area, just outside the doors that sheltered the wooden cubbies that held our coats and boots. it had been a wet night. some unlucky annelid had squirmed its way out of the soil and onto the blacktop, probably enjoying the warmth. then the sun had risen, and turned the water into mist, and fried the poor little worm into a flat, squiggly piece of segmented noodle.

some kid i knew ate it.

all because of that book.
