    sweet corn for farm stands is best picked before the sun hits it, converting the sugars to starch

    nothing like riding your bike 3-5 miles as a 12 year old to don rain gear that doesn't fit so you can pick corn from soaking wet rows taller than you at 5am


    that's what i call summer vacation

    When I was a toddler I worked in a Super Walmart in Death Valley picking wet sweet corn and harvesting rice, coconuts and potatoes at 3:00 a.m., all in my satin high heels. Afterwards I would bag these and other items and carry them out to customers' boats, then bring in all the carts. Having no bicycle with which to commute I had to walk seven miles in the snow, uphill both ways, against a 40 knot headwind dodging lightning bolts and stray bullets from gang warfare. I got through it by listening to Ted Nugent cassette tapes on my Sony Walkman and having Mom spike my formula with speed. When my boss criticized me in public I castrated the S.O.B. with a plastic knife from the Subway concession.

    It made me the man I am today.

    Or she has some self respect and knows she can do better.
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    I have 29 lawyers that work for me. She's a brat, and she's gonna grow up to be a toxic, entitled employee.

    Are you going to tell me that I don't know what I'm talking about?
