Another Triumph in the Garden
Dave told me over and over that I couldn't grow corn. I pointed out that corn was for sale in the gardening centers. He said it didn't matter. I planted some anyway. I notified him that the corn had sprouted and was growing. He said that I would not get any edible corn. After a while I let him know that the corn had tassels. He didn't care. One day I asked if he had seen the ears of corn on the stalks. He indicated that he didn't think they'd have any kernels on them.
Finally, two days ago, we went out and harvested two ears of corn, and cooked them for dinner. They were scrumptious. Dave now says he's impressed. Guess I showed him.
