fire FIRE!!

Nothing – repeat NOTHING FOCUSES YOUR MIND LIKE THE WORDS ‘ YOUR HOUSE IS ONE FIRE’ AT 3AM… “WAKE UP!! GET DRESSED” AS YOU TRY TO STUFF BOTH LEGS IN ONE HOLE ASS-BACKWARDS, MEANWHILE CATCHING YOURSELF FROM GOING DOWN IN A HEAP WHILE FIRMEN ARE ASKING YOU WHO BELONGS TO THE BURNING WHITE DENALI OR YOKON OR WHATEVER SHOOTING FLAMES SKYWARD – THEY CAN’T ASK HIM CUZ HE’S ALREADY IN HOSPITAL SEMI-CORHERENT CUZ HE SPLASHED GAS OVER HIMSELF TRYING TO FUEL HIS TRUCK FROM A SPOUTNESS JERREY CAN AND RECEIVED NASTY BURNS IN THE PROCESS..

AT LEASE THE FIREMEN HAVE DRAGGED THE BURNING TRUCK AWAY FROM THE HOUSE WHERE IT CAN’T DO FURTHER HARM AND MY PYROTECH IS LOCKED IN HOSPTIAL WHERE HE CAN’T SET ANYTHING ELSE AFLAME AND HIS BURNS CAN HEAL…. FIRE DEPARTMENT JUST HAD HIS TRUCK TAKEN TO THE IMPOUND LOT. NOW THE ACUTE DANGER IS PASSED I CAN TRY TO GET SOME REST BEFORE WE LOOK INTO THE MEAT OF THIS 430AM
