Mental Sampler 7
By now, I am sure you have read about the fertility-enhancing worm. I didn’t click on the story at first because I didn’t want to see the pictures of the worm. But, of course, curiosity won out. Still. Worms!
I think I found my deal breaker. I don’t know if I could be infected with worms in order to have a baby. I am aware that I also didn’t think I could give myself injections, and I clearly overcame that fear. But being infected with worms takes things to a different level. I didn’t realize I had a limit, and yet here it is.
What do you think? Could you purposefully become infected with worms?
Do you ever go on Atlas Obscura? It’s one of my favourite places on the Internet. You type in your zipcode (or the zipcode of wherever you’re going), and it spits out interesting things in the area.
I really want to go see this park of monsters. I clicked on the article because I had been to Zuccari’s monster house in Rome, and thought they were related. (See! Mental Floss and Atlas Obscura go hand-in-hand.) But they’re not. And I missed this during my trip to Italy. Must go back.
I checked Jojo Moyes’s new book, After You, from the library. I decided to borrow it rather than buy it, mostly due to my experience with her other book. I guess I wanted to see similarities before I committed? I’m really enjoying it; it’s a continuation of the first story. Though I’m only at the beginning. Anyone else read it yet?
