The cartoonist loved playing in the hay mow as a kid, but is terrified of it as an adult.

Hay now

What doesn’t kill you makes you itchy

Growing up on a farm is full of unique experiences that cannot and will not under any circumstances be recreated as a wholly (or partially) rational adult. You can’t make me!!

The hay mow was a fun place to play, the straw mow was marginally better – it had a pulley rope! And a 20 foot drop if you didn’t let go on time. I’m probably remembering wrong. There are a million ways to die on a farm, and many of them are super fun. 🙂
