No, that is not meant as an insult to my kind readers -- rather, it's a description of what I did a few weekends ago! Fortunately, getting lost was the whole purpose of the outing.
Does this give you the idea?
Tiffany, Pablo, and I headed out into the country and met up with a few of Pablo's friends and coworkers at a corn maze.
We were concerned by the appearance of the corn field -- short, ragged stalks that couldn't be considered green by any standard!
But as it turned out, it was still a fun and challenging adventure!
The weather was just right -- sunny, crisp, and cool. It actually felt like fall (compared to this week's 70 degree temperatures!).
One of the occupants of the field, which we toured via hayride:
We finished it off with a turn each at the corn cannon -- yes, someone has invented a way to shoot ears of corn out of tube using compressed air. Go figure.
Tiffany (notice the ear of corn in flight!):
There were Corn Cops present to keep the marksmen under control:
And this, my friends, is an ear of corn whizzing past the moon:
Unfortunately, it didn't whiz past the target...
We've decided to go back next year -- but a little earlier in the season!
