Ha!! i wish this wouldn't be true.. but funny like that it kinda is:P so lemme start with the beginning:
remember how i say that i love to light candles all over the house? see where this goes to?? oh you haven't heard it yet.. so patience.. it will get there.. ok so i lighted candles all over the house ... it was smelling like vanilla .. all was happy in the world... at some point i felt it started smelling like hot iron.. and i was like.. hmm that's not good.. cause we don't do horseshoes in here:P.. so i started tracing the smell.. heeey what would you think??? one of the wacky candles in a metal candle holder was going out of the loop and started a small flame.. but being close to the wall i was kinda worried.. but as stupid as i was i didn't take the candle holder away from the wall and put it a safe place to stop the small flame.. instead i yelled for a towel!!!!.. husband ran to get me the said towel.. but what my smarty pants freaking out does meanwhile???.. yup.. grab a glass of water instead... you see where this goes??? ok hang in here for a while... so i grabbed the glass of water and without hesitation i started pouring over the small flame.... the second i was doing that i heard the voice in my head saying:
..."darn you screwed up this time.. you know you shouldn't have poured water over an open flame.. remember??? you've read about this a couple of months ago in an article.. that's why you asked for a towel in the first place... remember??? remember???"
And as this small annoying voice was running in the back of my mind.. i see it started... a huge flame started spreading over the whole wall to the ceiling and moving on.. i was just numbed i couldn't move .. my husband yelled to get out of there... while running towards me(like in the movies:P)and i was just staring at it thinking .. "wow this would be a great movie effect!"... i know as stupid as that:P
anyway 5 seconds later.. it stopped(thank God before reaching the electric sockets .. otherwise we would have had a big movie effect.. remember??).. i was still there staring.. my husband made it to me and got me away from it.. asked me if i was ok.. i was .. and i didn't even have the all burned out hair like in the movies:P... bummer right??:):):)
anyway now we're left off with a huge flame spot all over our wall and ceiling... shit.. we need to paint again... so after letting it dry for a few minutes then wiped the wall and the ceiling with a soft clean cotton cloth we started painting:P happy times.. i get so grumpy when i paint.. especially the ceilings:P anyway.. long story short.. at first hand it was getting gray (remember how the black and white turns out gray?? yeah it does:P) but then third hand everything was starting getting a white shade.... now today i have to get another coat and see if the gray truly disappears..
All in all .. lesson learned... water doesn't extinguish the fire... try a towel .. faster next time:P Also.. i can do movies effects just as easy:) but i don't think anyone cares for that:):):)
So this was the day i almost burned the house... technically i actually did it, not almost did it.. but it sounds better this way:)
Oh i gotta go now.. work and paint job.. that sounds like a dread full day to me:P
