Worm Release Program

For the past couple of weeks, since our landlord fixed the nasty bathroom leak, worms have been entering the bathroom with great ease. Worms are harmless but they are terrifying when you turn and notice one on the shower wall at head-height and you are without your glasses so you can't see it without bringing your face to within half an inch of the worm. They could be one of those mind-bogglingly disgusting apartment centipedes, which we have and which we allow to live because they eat nasties. Well, they are allowed to live until we see them. Then, we kill. Today there were worms on the shower curtain, so I scooped them up, carried them outside, and deposited them in a planter. I do this so often now that I feel like I deserve a badge of some sort and perhaps non-profit status.
