aMAIZING!

I LOVE teenagers kind of.
I was driving home today and called Parker
"What are you doing?"
"Oh nothing.  Just creating an event on Facebook."

"Oh"

Perhaps I shouldn't have just responded "oh."
Perhaps I should have asked more questions.

It's Homecoming this weekend.
A lot of the kids don't like to go to the dance.
Why?
Well without boring you or sounding pious,
here's a clip from the flyer that all the kids received about all the Homecoming activities, Spirit Days, parade, and dance -
"Students will get a bracelet when they
arrive at the dance. When found dancing
inappropriately they will be warned and
have the bracelet cut. If they must be
approached a second time, for
inappropriate dancing, they will be asked
to leave the dance."
Really!  I can't make this stuff up.
 
So Parker has created an alternative to the dance.
Yep - it's the Facebook event he was creating.
Good thing I'm his "friend" so I can see what is going on!
 
It's "An aMAIZING night of corn"
"If you dont want to go to homcoming or you just have a corn maze fetish then this is your kind of party. We will be meeting at my house at 7 then going to the corn maze at Chatfield. Tell your parents not to worry there will be no one who is EAR-responsible allowed. After the maze we will be returning to my house for food, games and whatever else you do at an after maze party. Sorry for the CORN-y jokes. Admission to the maze is $10"

I thought he was just going to the corn maze with a group of friends.
Evidently not.
It's a full fledged party and all of the food must be CORN-y.

It sounds disgusting to me but he wants........
CORN dogs
Caramel CORN
CORN chips and salsa
CORN on the cob
Candy CORN

This sounds like a lot of carbs....even for me!
Can we have veggie tray?
Can we make something in the shape of corn?

Whadda ya got girls (and boys)?

Suggestions?
Oh and can you come over and clean the house as well?

Rachael you beat me to it, and I am glad because I wasn't sure where I and seen them! How about corn bread...yum Mmm mm! I might hand out bracelets here and just cut them for random inappropriate behavior. Love Parker's initiative!

Captain Dumbass said...

Really, is there any food out there that doesn't have corn in it is some form?

Melissa said...

I thought corn WAS a vegetable :)
