Can someone please help me to stop buying the 5 ears o' sweet corn when I'm at the supermarket? You know, the kind that are prepackaged, and shrink-wrapped while half-husked, so as to show off and tempt me with their yummy deliciousness as I walk by them in their little stand in the middle of the produce department? It's irrisistable to me, and I wind up buying them, cooking up enough corn to last me for 2 weeks, and then when I realize it's about to go bad, I start eating it in large quantities. Quantities that shouldn't be consumed all at once, according to my lower-intestine.
Yesterday, I ate a lot of random stuff. Some chips and salsa, a salad with yummy caesar dressing (Gerards...mmmm...), half of a baked potato with bbq sauce on it, some white cheddar Cheez-its (a.k.a. the most delicious spawn of Satan, ever...), a plum, and then decided at about 4 p.m. that a plate of corn sounded good. So I heated up about 3/4 of a cup of the corn I cooked up last week, and which was calling out to me to be eaten before it has a chance to go bad, and poured a little hot sauce on it (Crystal, in case anyone cares what my preference for hot sauce is...), and then ate it with a vengeance. I then proceded to go meet the boyfriend at the Moose, where I had the BEST bowling game ever, consumed a few beers, and then we went home to watch a movie before we hit the sack.
And then the corn came to visit. Well, really it had been warning me all night. I had a feeling it wasn't going to be happy. And it wasn't. What the FUCK was I thinking eating all that corn, and then not eating anything else for the rest of the night? Not only was I starving by the time I got out of the house this morning, but then I didn't think I'd even make it all the way to the office before my ass exploded in my car. Fortunately, I managed to get here without issue (elevators never seemed to go so slow before...it was excrutiating!), but I'll tell you what...I will NOT be eating corn again for a while. Or a caesar salad, for that matter. And the Cheez-its are almost gone, so once I polish them off, that'll be it for a while.
Damned delicious sweet corn.
