A friend at work had an apple tree raining apples on her lawn and invited us to come pick apples. I brought home 3 bags full and made apple dumplings last night. But to my dismay, the worms were cleverer than I thought. I was trying to pick out apples with no wormholes, but apple after apple after apple showed my ignorance. Worms can crawl in through the very base of the apple where it normally looks like a hole anyways because that's where the flower was. So I had to cut around quite a few little maggots former homes.
At least I made Bonnie Jean laugh when I opened the first surprise and told her I had disturbed a monster of the deep.
