We’re still a little in denial that it is the end of summer. When did fall creep right in? No real complaints, fall is my FAVORITE time of year – however, were the F did summer go???? In true Maximo fashion, we felt it was necessary to have a summer sendoff with an ode-to-corn: Maximo’s favorite vegetable of the summer – and possibly all time. This post is purely to embarrass him once he reaches 13 years old.
If he could write a poem I think it would go like this (I think best read out-loud with Eddie Money’s I Think I’m In Love song playing in the background. Click here for added effect):
End of Summer: Maximo’s Ode to Corn
Oh Corn, you’re so delicious, I love to eat you even when I am not bored.
And waive you around like a warrior sword.
I like to sit on my mom to eat it too.
Oh corn, as long as you’re around I can never be blue!
I like to eat you after I destroy mom’s TV stand.
I like to eat you looking out the window while I stand.
I like to eat you on the floor in front of the fridge door.
Oh corn, why do you have to leave at the end of summer, I just want to eat more!
End of Summer.
