5. At one point, a worm crawled between Nora's toes and she screamed and started kicking and flailing. I'd never actually seen her this scared of a bug. Tonight while going to sleep, she said, "Mom, my foot is really itchy. It's because that worm bit me." "No, Nora, worms don't bite. They're good. They're basically like a drinking straw for mud." "Then why did you tell me they bite?" "I didn't tell you they bite." "Yes, you did, and I can't believe you said that about worms. I'm going to bed."
