    Who is earwig ?

    What he/she said is probably "here we go!"

    puzzle,

    People who respond to questions like to know if their answer has been of assistance. Unless you tell them, they never know. There is no need to write – if you just click on the ‘Thank you’ button at the bottom of their post.

    I didn't know what is an earwig! And I didn't know that that was a joke! I thought earwig is somebody's name and I forgot to add that earwiggo is a word play with his/her name!

    I looked it up on google images just minutes ago. It was disgusting! We call it "Aabdozdak" (water thief) in Iran, I am happy I don't see it anymore since we moved to the Capital.

    I will have nightmares now. I hate those types of bugs.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
