I haven't eaten a hot dog in something like ten years. Suddenly, weirdly, I want a hot dog. And not just any hot dog: a Koegel. I can imagine the snap as I bite into it, the soft, white bun and a line of spicy mustard decorating the top.

Apparently my parasite is causing me to crave things that aren't good for me.

Also? I'm pregnant.
This can't be real, right? A person? How can there be a person in there?
