I can't wait.

I've been there for every year's harvest. I make out with maybe six ears.

While I'm in your corn field, I can usually be found laying in the dirt, looking up into the sky, eating raw fresh sweet corn before finding my way out.

It takes a good sense of direction before wandering in.

My private little field of dreams...
