My wife contends that I don't properly eat corn on the cob. She takes a linear approach. She starts at the left side of the cob and horizontally grazes her way across to the right side. Then she repeats the process to the left. I, on the other hand, use a more circuitous technique. I start at either end and work my around the cob, rotating the cob in a circular motion as I gnaw on the sweet kernels.
She not only believes that my approach is incorrect, but she firmly believes my method of eating corn is a sign of inferior intelligence. She's probably right, so I won't waste energy debating; I'll need all the energy I can muster, so that I can inefficiently eat my corn. I'm just glad that I don't need to possess a Nobel Prize in physics to eat corn on the cob.
I'm also glad she married me despite my shortcomings.
