Playing With Fire

| Related | November 27, 2013

(I’m about nine years old. My father decides to get rid of the weeds that have grown through the gravel driveway. As I watch through the window, he takes a can of kerosene and empties it all over the drive, then lights a match and ignites it. The entire driveway shoots up in flames.)

Dad: “OH S***!”

(He rushes to put out the blaze. About 20 minutes later, he comes back inside, sweating, swearing, and covered in soot.)

Me: “So. Daddy. What have we learned from this?”
