Ray:

What I found really interesting is Fr. Joe and I blurted out
"worms" at the exact same time to answer the question of what we
thought other life on other planets would end up being.

Intelligent worms; worms with a cooperating society; social
life; etc. The ones I imagined had forward facing eyes;
sometimes liked to wear hats and party with friends. But, then,
that's me.
