Bad Haiku Friday

Going to a maze!
(made of corn). Nope, not kidding
It's a cornfield maze.

I wish I were kidding.
But that's what we're doing tomorrow.

The kids love it.

When I was their age I could have done it for free right next to my house!

Don't believe me? Here's the website:

A few highlights from their website--with original bolding and punctuation intact:

The maze will not be haunted at any time.
(can they guarantee that? Do they have an agreement with the ghosties?)
(you don't say!)
Do not pick, pull, throw or damage the corn. You may eat the corn for survival purposes only !!
(this, to our middle schoolers, means that they haven't seen chocolate in 10 minutes. expect a few less ears of corn when we leave)
If you have small children, are pregnant, claustrophobic, have a medical condition, or get easily frustrated we advise against entering the maze.
(If you have lack of common sense, we advise obtaining some)
Out of common courtesy, please refrain from using cell phones in the maze, unless absolutely necessary.
(what is this? a movie?! I think 100 middle schoolers and not enough adults constitutes "absolutely necessary", thankyouverymuch)

I love the teenagers...
I love the teenagers...
I love the teenagers...
(this should be proof)

I really think those are fun and I am one of the people who gets lost....

I'd get lost and a little claustophic. Lol. BUT, it does look like fun.. then again, I'd start thinking about the movie, "The Children of the Corn" or something like that.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

I love corn mazes! Last year was the first time I'd ever gone, and we had a great time. Then again, we weren't going with kids, maybe that's why it was such a good time. ;-) hope you make it out!

You are braver than I am! I am very claustrophobic and when we go next week to the pumpkin patch, I'll be waiting outside of the maze :) Have fun tomorrow!

thanks for stopping by my blog! I love corn mazes! I did my oldest daughters 16th surprize birthday party at one. 30 teenagers hid through out the maze and surprised her along the way. she kept saying "are there more of my friends hidden in there?" It was great...except when I wanted to go home and trying to round up those 31 teens! ugh!
have a great weekend!

The weatherman and I brought little dude to a corn maze, since we live in NE there is really not a shortage of them! My one corn maze memory was little dude kicking off his shoes and we not realizing it while he was in the stroller at the time. He didn't tell us till we were just about out. KIDDOS! Glad you made it out with your sanity and alive, those things creep me out.
