(CNN)Imagine looking into your irritated eye for a pesky eyelash, only to pull out a translucent, wiggling worm nearly a half inch long."I looked at it, and it was moving," recalled 28-year-old Abby Beckley of Grants Pass, Oregon. "And then it died within about five seconds."Now, imagine doing that not once but 14 times.
In some mountaineering book I read, a climber relates the story of a woman he met in Kathmandu. She was Swiss or something. She was quite insistent on coming back to the climber's room. He was a boy-climber, that is, of the male gender. As they were being affectionate outside his room, he saw a worm crawl out of her left nostril then crawl back up her right nostril. And that was the end of that romantic encounter. Sad!
