Inching Along

Yesterday as I talked to a neighbor, I noticed a tiny worm inching along on her shoulder. Being a good friend, I informed her of her hitchhiker and flicked it off. She tells me, it was an inch worm. It would seem that when trees bud, so do the inch worms. Called the inch worm, not only because they inch along, they are also one inch.
Today another neighbor knocked at my door to repay a twenty I had lent her earlier in the day. And there on her shoulder was an inchworm! This is the same neighbor that coughed in my face when she had the flu, thus giving me the worst flu I’d had in decades. Did I tell her she had an inchworm crawling on her? Hell no! 

Moral of the story? Don't give me your flu!
