U-G-L-Y You Ain't Got No Alibi

This is a tomato worm.  In real life, it is about as wide as an adult finger and about 4 inches long.   And just look at the pointy thing on its tail!  Thank goodness for boys on the farm.  Here was the conversation tonight:
Boys:  "You want to see a tomato worm?"
Girls:  "Eeewww!  Gross! Wait, let me look closer.  No, wait, take it away!"
Boys:  "OK, when you're done looking, we better squish it for you."
Girls:  "Why?"
Boys:  "You don't want to get your shirt dirty."
Girls:  "Our shirts? Wait, how do you squash it?"
Boys:  "With your foot, but oh man, that's a thick worm."
Girls:  "Eeewww!"

Goodnight, and pleasant dreams.
