I had no idea. None. Really. Who knew a corn maze could be so exhausting? I have no clue how long we were in there, but it was well over an hour. I had serious doubts as to whether we would find our way out before nightfall.
Tonight was Elise's Brownie troop outing to a corn maze. Siblings were invited, but a parent had to accompany any younger siblings. Since Nina wanted to go, that meant I was going too. Really though, it sounded like fun. I was looking forward to the event. I never imagined it involved walking for miles and miles with sweat rolling off every last body part! The girls started out RUNNING through the maze as I scuffled along behind trying to keep up. After a good half hour of that though, they got tired, slowed down, and we walked along together... and walked... and walked... and walked. Apparently the maze is about a mile and a half long, but in looking for the 10 hidden stations where we were supposed to stamp our card, we must have walked every inch of the maze a minimum of 2-3 times. We never did find stations 3 and 5, and that's not from lack of trying! The girls had fun, I think... at least when they weren't complaining about being tired, hot, thirsty, and wanting to find the exit. Fun, yes... we'll just call it fun. As for me, I now have a better understanding of "like a needle in a haystack"... it is kinda like "a Brownie in a corn maze".
Do those chairs at the edge of the cornfield seem odd to anyone else?
