As is typical of most TriadCity commands, Squirm searches for <thing> in a specific order, starting with the room you're in, then your worn or wielded equipment, then your inventory. So, if there's a box in the room, and a box in your inventory, the command "squirm box" will refer to the one in the room, not your inventory. You'd need to use "squirm 2.box" for the latter.

Squirm can be modified with an arbitrary word of your choice. Usually you'll use an intensifying adverb as shown in the examples above. Note that Squirm does not use this modifier as a search specifier when looking for <thing>. Instead Squirm displays this modifier via the Game channel. Thus you can "squirm squeamishly", "squirm sarcastically,", and so on. You can also "squirm 18373649" or "squirm toothpaste-like", so, please don't. It's up to you to get the syntax right.
