Near Fatal Worm Incident
There is a bait shop in town that is proud, and rightly so, of the size and liveliness of the nightcrawlers they sell, which are raised locally instead of imported from Canada. Each time you purchase them, the owner will dump the container out into a scoop so that you can look them over. On this particular visit I just remember seeing a whole mess of big crawlers. I went out and used just one or two to catch perch with, and when I got home I put the container with the rest in a crisper tray in the refrigerator like I usually do, much to Tiffany’s dismay.
A few days later I needed to catch bait again, so I took the worms out and opened the lid to make sure they hadn’t gone moldy or something. I couldn’t see any, so I took it outside where I could dump some dirt out. There were no worms? My first thought was that I had gotten ripped off, but as I thought about it I knew that I had gotten a good container full. In a panic, I checked the fridge again… No worms were found in the bottom of the crisper tray or wandering around the fridge. Maybe they got out in my car, but I hadn’t noticed any new smells?
So I went and got more worms and caught my bait, but this continued to perplex me. When I got home I looked through the fridge again, and noticed that something just wasn’t right with the cauliflower, which was sealed in plastic wrap. There they were! :0a5: Every one of them had managed to wiggle in through the plastic wrap, and they were squeezed in there between the plastic wrap and the cauliflower, looking content in their new home.

The fatal part would have come if Tiffany had gone to get the cauliflower and discovered this before I did. My fishing days would be over. :ooooh:.

WOW!! You are lucky you found them..........I can't imagine what my wife would have done. Lucky for me, we have another fridge in the garage, specifically for me to keep beer and bait in.
