Did you feel slight rumble of the ground this afternoon about 3:30? That was my grandpa rolling over in his grave as I paid $6.00 for 12 ears of sweet corn. When you come from corn country and your family farms 500 acres of the stuff it is a cardinal sin to pay ANY amount of money for corn, let alone what I did. Within the next few weeks in Podunk you will be able to buy corn for $1.oo a dozen. More than likely though, someone will know someone who has more than they can get rid of and
pawn it off give you all that you want.
I just couldn’t resist. My roots got the best of me. We had sweet corn for dinner, all 12 ears. We may be, to borrow a phrase from an old friend, shitting through a screen door come morning, but it was oh so worth it. If you promise not to tell I will let you in on a little secret, I am going back tomorrow to buy more. Please make sure all your belongings are secure because Grandpa is about to roll over again!!
