In case you haven’t noticed before, my Mommy loves company and people. I know, that’s rather strange for a bookworm, but did you know that worms actually love company and form herds?

The earthworms use touch to communicate and influence each other’s behaviour, according to research published in the journal Ethology. By doing so the worms collectively decide to travel in the same direction as part of a single herd.

Over the last couple of weeks, we joined up with Wordless Wednesday. From new words to no words, perfectly combination. Wordless Wednesday is hosted by Sandee @ Comedy Plus and it’s even more simple than Wondrous Words Wednesday.
Wordless Wednesday (WW) is a visual blogosphere phenomenon. Wordless Wednesday is a simple blog post featuring a photo which conveys a message that speaks for itself without using words. One thing for sure is this is a fun and easy meme to do. So come and join us in Wordless Wednesday.
I don’t always like to be gregarious with people (except my Mommy and Daddy), but when it comes to the rest of the family, I’m the gregarious queen.
Would you describe yourself as gregarious?
