The Worm

Hello again everyone.

Have you ever heard of the saying:  “The early bird gets the worm”?  Well the Old Lady and I were talking today and that saying came up.

The Old Lady was suggesting that getting up early to eat was a desirable thing.  I suggested otherwise … claiming that sleep is more important than eating early in the morning.  (As many of you, including the Old Lady know, I’m not a morning person.)

That is when the Old Lady said, confidently, “The early bird gets the worm!!”

Now, I understand that if you are a bird, and you eat worms for sustenance, you might well get more worms in the morning than any other time of day.  While that saying is often attributed to humans, I’m not buying it.


Humans don’t eat worms.  I rest my case.  (microphone drop)

If you eat worms, then you have some other kind of problem that is beyond the scope of this blog post.  For example, you may be a contestant on the tv show “Survivor” and are starving.  Or you could be lost in the jungle without anything else to eat.  Or, you could be just simply crazy.  In any event, you don’t want to get up early for it.

If you are in distress, sleep is a good way to de-stress.  That’s what I think, anyway.

Thanks for reading and stay tuned.
