Childhoodweek day 1: Creatures


I'm taking part in Childhood Week! If you don't know what it is here's the link to the official website.

Prompt for day 1 is 'Creatures'. Here's my lil' childhood memory for today:

When I was around 8-9, my friends and I would play at this playground, which was surrounded with various maple trees and chestnut trees. Every spring, THOUSANDS of inchworms would hatch and be crawling around the edges of the playground, munching on the leaves. And so it was a tradition of ours to hunt for and collect as many inchworms as we could and keep them in the palm of our hand where we’d each keep a few leaves for them to eat while they crawled around, leaving slime in our hands. We would, of course, compete against each other to see who could find the most worms. But it was an activity we would only do for about a week every year because we had this thing: up until a certain size, inchworms were cute, but once they gorged themselves to caterpillar size, they were nasty as heeeeeck. Thinking about it now, all of it sounds a tad gross, but oddly heartwarming and nostalgic at the same time. ;)
