It's the most remarkable word I've ever seen

Oh, yeah, something else about the goldfish pond: it's got worms. This is normal enough and if we had been quicker about putting the fish in the pond they might have eaten enough worm eggs we wouldn't notice worms at all. But we weren't able to get them out sooner, and worms will do what they do and you can't fault them for that.

We got at least two worms each a good six inches or so long, enough I'm not sure the adult fish will be able to do anything about them. But when we discovered one, before putting the fish back in, we also saw it working on some kind of worm yoga. It kept curling up and re-curling into different forms, including some pretty convincing impersonations of letters like C and B, and later on a paperclip shape. I hope it wasn't trying to warn us about something.
