One day when I was 11, my family was sitting around in the living room of our cottage just chatting and relaxing. My Uncle Tom had gotten up and gone to the bathroom which was very close to the room we were all sitting in. It had gotten a bit quiet when we heard him yell from the bathroom “Corn?! When did I eat corn?”

I laughed so hard I almost peed my pants. Now, every time I eat corn I think of that and smile. And I always will.

Thanks again for all your support these last couple weeks. I hope when you eat corn, you’ll think of this story. My Uncle Tom would have LOVED that. :)

    I have an uncle who everytime he sits down at the table and eats corn asks who at the table wants to have a “Corn Race” with him. I know from experience it doesn’t matter if you agree to play he still informs you of he results upon exiting the bathroom. Ahh uncles…

    I can’t eat asparagus without thinking of an ex-boyfriend who told me that it would, “make my tink stink.” *sigh*

    Does your family remind you of that when they think you have written a ‘corny’ post? ;-)

    I will never be able to eat corn again without laughing. (Some explanation will undoubtedly become necessary.) Thank you, Uncle Tom and GOTC.
