This morning I took a sip of water from a glass that had been sitting out all night and quickly discovered that it tasted like worms—an observation I immediately shared with my new husband.
“How do you know what worms taste like?” the good doctor replied.
“Well, in Iowa whenever it rains the worms crawl out onto the sidewalk, and they smell really bad, and this water tastes like that. Like the smell of worms.”
“Oh. The smell of worms. That’s different.”
