We have altogether too many bugs and insects and creepy crawlies and things that make me scream like a wee little girl. It’s tropical life, I tell you. No way would even half of these creatures survive in, you know, Canada, where it gets so cold that humans barely survive.
Thankfully, he didn’t. He just flew around a bit, basically annoying me, and then he left. *whew*
The first clue to his origins should be the fact that he’s on my cutting board. You know, the one I use for cutting vegetables? Yeah, that one.
I made a carrot and bean curry today, so this guy must have hitchhiked with either the carrots or the beans. This guy is about an inch or inch and a half long – yikes!
Unfortunately, worms and caterpillars and the like are, ah, rather normal in vegetables here. Have to cut the beans, eggplant, and certain other vegetables in such a way to expose any potential lurkers inside. Yeah, really.
Other vegetables, like carrots, potatoes, and onions, show obvious signs on the outside when they’re wormy.
I think I’m going to vomit now…
