Anyway, last Monday morning there were an unusually high number of dead worms drying out on the sidewalk. Among them there were two that were still alive. They were barely clinging to life, but when I picked them up they had strength enough to writhe a little in response, so maybe they were able to recover once I put them back in the earth.
ONE WAS DESCRIBING AN ELEGANT, CALLIGRAPHIC SQUIGGLE
THE OTHER ONE WAS REALLY FAT
Number of worms rescued: 69
