…I took my car to my mechanic in Montclair for an oil change. He and his wife welcomed me back from Mexico with a surprise: a bowl of worms. Of the Gummi variety, on a bed of crushed Oreos. I have the weirdest — but nicest — readers.

    Seems like a fitting dessert after being brave enough to tackle eating the real creepy-crawlers. My brag about having eaten squid pales by comparison.

    One of the weird ones. (And proud of it!)

    This post was a nice story and reminded me how amusing I thought the first Mexico meals post was when it revealed that the “King of the Tuna Melt” took a chance on a meal of worms. You’re a braver man than I.
