In this season of summer fruits, we get tons of fresh fruit from our trees. One drawback of homegrown fruit, or organically grown fruit (basically no pesticides), however, is the possible unwelcome worm. I am a bit cautious every time I eat a homegrown peach, fearing that a worm might jump out upon my next bite. Whenever I bring this up, the men present always say “I don’t care. It’s extra protein,” or something of the like. Now, I’ve only heard that come from men, and it seems like nearly all the men I know think that way.
Really? Guys, you don’t mind eating worms?
From the previous times that I posted this question, there were responses from men showing that they do look out for holes or use a knife, indicating that there are some who do care. Perhaps the guys I’ve encountered who say “extra protein” actually do care when they’re alone, but want to sound macho in front of other people.
Are there any women who use the same “extra protein” reasoning?
Remember, what’s worse than finding a worm in your peach? Half a worm.
