Write every day: The wonder of flatworms

The flatworm is my spirit animal. These badass animals won’t be stopped. Cut them in 1/2, they become 2 worms. Split their head, they grow 2 heads. Lose an eye, they grow a new one. Stick an eye on a flatworm that lacks eyes, the eye becomes fully functional.

Pieces of flatworms that are one-279th become whole flatworms again. They overcome every obstacle put in their way and become even better for it, again and again and again. You can’t beat ’em. They clap back. That level of resilience is my goal.
