    It rains and rains and the worms are laying on the sidewalk. I hate that. I end up walking in the mud because I don't want to squish them.

    why do they do that?

    Water soaks into the soil. Worms have to breathe so they come out of the ground for oxygen. That's what I think anyway.

    why don't they go deeper where the soil is drier? And if they come up, why don't they lay in the grass?

    Hmmm. Possibly it takes longer to dig than to drown? Not too sure, and maybe the grass retains water better than the concrete does. Kinda like when you step on what you think is dry grass and then your foot just sinks from all the water.

    How do they know where a sidewalk is? What did they do before we put in a sidewalk?

    They are waiting on the sidewalk for you to come by. But you always take a detour, poor worms..

    It's a quote from the computer game "Worms" when each worm gets killed a little box appears appears over their head saying "XXXX is an ex-worm".
    Flappy was the only one I could remember...
