Lest you suspect...

...that I exaggerate for literary effect:

The Maggot Incident happened again. This time an unwashed pot of chicken saag was to blame.

I need to take myself out back and shoot myself, I am so disgusted and disgusting. And I can feel them crawling all over me. yeeeeeahashshgh.

Eeewwww. I am so sorry. I can't even imagine! I'm sure you saw this article in the New York Times: http://www.nytimes.com/2007/08/31/us/31spider.html?em&ex=1188705600&en=fbf002a0bb300d1f&ei=5087%0A. That totally had me squirming & running for the shower.

I have to ask... How long did you leave this pot, such that it became infested with maggots? I'm not pointing a finger at you. Dishes sit for a while at our house too ... but we've never had maggots! :)

Dude, at least they're not in YOUR TOES, like the patient I had at the hospital last week...

In Southern California, they can appear from unwashed citrus. So if you simply throw out an orange that you've decided not to eat - you can still open your trash and discover new "friends". Eeek.

I totally understand your disgust and dismay.

After I ran screaming from the kitchen my husband found a sure fire fatal method - pour boiling water over them.

Thank god for boys.

EEEEEEWWWWWW! I have to admit, I almost barfed when I got to that part of your book. If it's gonna keep happening, maybe you need to find an emergency housecleaner or exterminator or something. Let them deal with it -- may well be worth the $$$.

Eeee-yow. That part of the book reminded me of leaving some bananas on an excessively crowded table for a while, and...of course, I also did it again. (At least they were just insects rather than maggots, but...)

The maggots again! Eww!!!

I just finished reading your book and it was fabulous! I'm sure this is all old news to you now, but I really enjoyed reading it and can't wait to see whatelse you come out with.
