…h no doors or windows, but with a matress stuffed in a closet with the stuffing sticking out of it. I had a packet of matches I’d taken from my grandmother’s kitchen five minutes earlier when I noticed the mattress and thought to my 6-year-old self: I wonder if that will burn? So I held a match to it and discovered that it would. As would everything else around it.
This is why I’m never fully calm when my son is out and about.
Boys get the craziest wild hairs.
Holy shit, SONNY! You could have burned to death!
