Getting Used to the Worms

It's amazing what you can get used to. I read that people who are diagnosed with a terminal illness almost always rebound quicker than they think they will. Not that they make a recovery, but their outlook and general happiness in life swings back to levels they thought they'd never be able to reach. I was standing in the shower a few months ago and saw some tiny worms. I freaked out and bleached the hell out of everything I could find, but they came back a few days later. Turned out that they were fruit fly larvae, and my landlord had to come and tear out my whole shower and replace a bunch of moldy garbage underneath. But while I was waiting for him to fix it, I had to learn to shower with a lot of little black worms. I didn't think I'd ever get used to it, but it turned out not to be that big of a deal, so I feel like I can empathize a bit.
