In the middle of the corn shucking, one of the buddies disappeared. I figured he was running to the bathroom and would be right back. This was not the case. So... I went inside to see what the heck he was doing.
He had taken it upon himself to decide that it was time for a break. An ice-cream break, to be exact.
He got out the cup, scoop, and ice-cream "all by himself", and was going to town.
I guess he figured he had been working hard enough to warrant a break.
It was just too cute to get onto him about not asking first. Does he look like he feels guilty?
