What Does Your Cob Say About You?

My Cob

I'm always intrigued with the way people eat their corn on the cob, what they leave behind when they're done and what it says about who they are.  Have you ever thought about this?  Look at mine above.  Strange, right?  I've been eating corn like this for as long as I remember... in a non-overlapping spiral!  And I've never really thought about why until now.  I'm not a "running my plate" kind of gal and never have been.  There is always something left behind.  Many may think that I'm wasting food, but to me it says, "Christina was here!".   And the spiral lets me know that I'm quirky and artistic!  What do you think this says about me?  Scatterbrained, bizarre, running in circles?  Or just plain fun.  :)

Mom's Cob

Now, here's my mom's corn.  To me this says, perfection, methodical, precise and neat... just like her cooking.

Dad's Cob

My dad's corn tell me that he completes the job once he starts but it's not going to be very neat or in any particular order... just like his paint jobs!  

Next time you eat corn on the cob, ask yourself.. "What does this say about me?"  Then ask everyone else what they think your corn means to them.  Fun family game!  You might get some answers that you weren't expecting.
