Title: Amazed and Confused
“It’s corn! FREAKING CORN!” Ed said to Grace.
“Calm down now, Ed. You know that it is like this every year at this time.”
Traffic on the Interstate Highway slow crawled in a three-mile snail trail of frustration and awe.
“A guy grows 5 acres of corn, CUTS A MAZE INTO IT—“
“Charges admission and causes a traffic jam WHEN PEOPLE SLOW DOWN TO LOOK AT CORN!”
“I swear I’m gonna come out here one night with a machete and chop it all down.”
This year a pumpkin patch replaced the Corn Maze. Traffic was blessedly unaffected.
