Snug as a grub in a dirt pod (huh?)

As I dig in the dirt, I often find "grub worms". I know there are many types, but I label them ALL as such. Grub worms. Yesterday, I was digging 😊 and I (about a foot down) cut open a pod, where inside all curled up was a "grub". Fat, large, white body, brown head and the guilty expression of someone who may have enjoyed a spinach plant or 10. I plucked out the two pieces of its little dirt pod and find it to be quite an interesting artwork.
