I love corn on the cob. There’s a picture of me in a family album: Asleep in my high chair, I have a firm grip on a gnawed-tothe- core corncob. I loved the sweet taste of corn so much that I cried if my mother took away the cob, the kernels long gone—a toddler’s unfit teething toy. I turn 43 this month, and I try not to throw such fits when summer’s gold rush of corn runs out.
