The Origin Story: This is a true story. Many years ago, when my sister was very little, I had bought myself a Reese's Peanut Buttercup. I purchased it at Cavicchi's, a local family-owned store. When I opened the candy bar I found a very large white worm on it. I immediately placed it in my freezer so I could present the offending vermin to the store clerk the next day. When I went to retrieve the candy from the freezer it was gone. I asked everyone if they saw my candy bar. My sister sheepishly admitted that she ate it. I laughed right at her and told her about the worm.
Years later she had to write a poem for school about a real-life experience. She chose this very subject and asked me to read her work. Puffing my chest out I told her, "this is how you write a poem" and proceeded to write the saga above. We all had a big laugh when I read it out loud and it became a family jewel ever since.
