He said he was trying to light a water heater (he’s does maintenance for an apartment complex) but he couldn’t get it to light. When he said that I said jokingly “don’t blow yourself up” to which he responds laughing “Do you remember when I blew YOU up?!”
WHAT DA FUK?! You did WHAT? WHEN? WHY?
he’s STILL laughing and tells me a story I’m sooo glad I do not remember.
Like to hear it? Here it goes..
He says when I was about 4 y/o I would follow him around everywhere, he says everytime he took a step I was right underfoot. Anyway, he was lighting a water heater and I was standing right by him looking over his shoulder. He says, he couldn’t get the thing to light, so he put the matches down to read the directions again when all of a sudden he heard WHOOSH and saw flames shooting out of the water heater that was right in front of our face.
He said the flames jumped out and burned all the hair off his face and the frt edge of his hairline and burned my eyebrows and the baby hair off my face, apparently we couldn’t move fast enough.
He says that after my momma realized we were okay she FELL OUT LAUGHING (do you notice a pattern). Now I don’t recall this happening, but now that i’m aware, i’m positive that my parents were UNFIT! lol
And this just might be the reason my eyebrows don’t ever grow in thick!! hmph
Oh! and please know he relayed this whole story while LAUGHING.
Am I too old to file a child abuse claim?!
Just asking.. lol
Have a good weekend.
