How to Eat Worms...Not Fried

Oh, my gosh! While we were sitting by the creek, Samantha found a slug in the dirt and showed it to Nathan. He bet her $10 that she wouldn't eat it. She DID! Nathan and I couldn't believe that she actually did it! Then Elliot walked up with a worm in his hand. He asked Nathan how much he would get if he ate it. Nathan told him $5 and, down the hatch! No hesitation! Next, Henry swallowed a worm so fast, I barely had time to snap a picture! After he took a quick drink, he raised his hands and exclaimed, "Six bucks!" Gillian didn't want to be the only one that didn't eat anything slimy, so she found herself a nice black slug (we had to make sure it wasn't a leech). Gillian showed the most hesitation - it took her a while to muster up the guts! She didn't like to idea of the slug being alive when it went down, so she tried gnawing on it a couple of times to kill it, which totally grossed me out! After making numerous faces, she eventually got it down. Nathan and I were out $25, but we had a good laugh. It was worth it! Our kids are so gross! After a while, Samantha said that her stomach felt kind of weird. It think she was cringing at the thought of what she just did!

Worth it!

Y'all are sick dude. BTW, Allison, Gillian looks so much like you in her slug-eating pictures, it's spooky (except the last one with her mouth open. That's one really big tongue).
