    Default Yuck, I think I swallowed some of them.

    Ok, so my wife is back in Canada for a couple of weeks and left me here in Cabarete where I am making my own meals. No problem and tonight I figure a big salad was a healthy thing to eat so I bought a head of lettuce and other colourful miscellaneous veggies to go with the lettuce (my wife always says colour is important). I soaked and rinsed the head of lettuce in fresh water to rid it of whatever creepy crawlies, dirt and sand etc might be in it.

    Once prepared, I know my wife would have been proud as the salad was very colourful and probably healthy as well.

    However, about half way through eating this delectable salad, I noticed quite a few creepy crawlies that had obviously been missed. Despite the fact I was probably getting all sorts of vitamins and maybe a bit of unplanned protein and that the salad had a beautiful colour, I immediately stopped eating. They looked like small inch worms with black heads and butts and a clear light green body.

    Well, I am certain these things did not settle only in the second half of my salad so I fear that some of them were consumed by me. I immediately guzzled down several large full glasses of wine (red because it is supposed to be good for old hearts) hoping the alcohol would kill them if the chewing didnít.

    So here is my question, what effect will these creepy crawlies have on me, having no doubt consumed a bunch of them?

    I certainly hope I get an answer soon or I will have consumed the whole large bottle of red and then I wonít give a damn.

    Thanks

    Andy

    Keep drinking Andy and call a doctor in the morning. Let NOTHING get in the way of a good drunk.

    Thanks Alan, I knew I could count on you, a trueTexan, for an astute diagnosis and good advice. I'll keep drinking.

    I would have done a few shots of whiskey and/or tequila...that would definitely kill them and if not you'd be too drunk to notice anyway.

    I am sure from the concern being shown by others Andy that there is NO chance of your digestive track being compromised with these little creepies! You have most likely had worse in many a Cabarete & Sosua restaurant & not realised it!

    Next time you prepare salad (or the like) separate the leaves & when rinsing add a teaspoon of salt. I am told it kills the buggers off & if there are enough you can mix them in to minced beef to make burgers with!! (You can check that with Rocky's friend STEVIE!).

    If you have a queasy stomach tomorrow, pop across to our place & we'll share a bottle of Famous Grouse or a decent single Malt together - I hate being in the company of creepy crawlies & will need to join you to settle my aversion too!!! ~ Grahame.

    If you are asking if you made the correct choice of wine, I would say you did. However, there are some who think the worms more resemble fish, and therefore select a modest, but full-bodied white wine.

    It's really a matter of personal taste.

    The title to your thread really intrigued me. Then I read that you are a guy. That spoiled the fantasy. Keep drinking it may take a while to get rid of those little bastards.
