“If a man has an apartment stacked to the ceiling with newspapers we call him crazy. If a woman has a trailer house full of cats we call her nuts. But when people pathologically hoard so much cash that they impoverish the entire nation, we put them on the cover of Fortune magazine and pretend that they are role models.”

 Local Corn Grows 35ft. Over Night!

Science FictionStory by: Timothy L.

The few times I checked on them, the stalks seemed to glow a little strangely in the morning sun even when they were sprouts. They are now bigger than any cornstalks I have ever seen or heard about.

I admit that I hadn't paid much attention after planting the kernels, it was a wet summer so there wasn't any watering and weeding is just too much work! The field sits between woods and swamp and is not particularly close to the house, but we tossed in some seeds. If the crop ended up becoming food for the local, plentiful wildlife, I can't say we really minded. We put food, seed and leftovers out for the critters most of the year anyway.

Having been away for a time on personal business, I returned and took the dog for a walk to check the field. She started barking, then shyed away as we neared, her fur standing up in a ridge along her back. Cautiously approaching, I was stunned to see corn that looked like it could almost have come out of a "Jack and the Cornstalk" story. Our pine trees are pretty mature, but if the corn keeps growing they are going to rival them in height. Is it possible that the plentiful rain was responsible for their gigantic size? Somehow I doubt it. Some of the stalks are strangely colored, and I have never seen kernels quite like those on their cobs! I don't think we will eat them, and the critters seem to have shunned them as well.
