I dreamed I was eating nuts (mixed nuts) and found a big one in the mix. Three white worms came out of the nut…two small and one bigger one. I looked at and said “this is why I never buy these.” I watched with curiosity as the worms crawling over the nut. Then the phone rang and woke me up in real life.
