Fireworks


Friday, July 3

1. How do you feel about fireworks displays?

We Varnark enjoy them. Though those exploding sounds can catch one off guard.

2. What were the details surrounding one of your mishaps with fire?

Well, it wasn’t necessarily my mishap. This occurred just after Stone got that grill. He said he had never tried to barbecue anything in his life. Getting that charcoal lit turned out to be a trick he had never done before. He did not put enough of the starter fluid on it. When the fire went out, he squirted it with some more fluid and this white smoke started floating up.

Stone told us to step back but Thenal got cocky and stuck his head up to the grill. Stone had not realized that Thenal had stuck his head over the grill as he re-lit the fire. The flare-up caught the gel in Thenal’s hair. Stone said Thenal looked like a lit match as he ran toward the pool of water.

3. Who in your life could be described as a real firecracker?

On that front, I would say it could be Penelope, Stone’s friend. She has a tendency to take things too personal. Yet, I truly have to say Thenal would should wear that title. Penelope tends to get even, but Thenal tends to explode when he gets angry, which is almost every time we turn around.

4. When did you last feel you were being put on display?

Last week. I woke up in this strange bed with bars on it wearing a blue bonnet, a T-shirt and something called a diaper. People looked at me and laughed. A sign on the side of this bed stated ‘DWI.’ Underneath it read “Dangerously Wild Ignoramus.” So, I started acting wild and dangerous. I guess I went off like fireworks when I discovered what ignoramus meant.

5. How confident are you in your barbecue skills?

I am getting better at it. Since Stone got that grill a month ago, he has been grilling and barbecuing all types of things. As his assistant on this, he allowed me to do some of the grilling.

Though, this morning, I woke up and realized I smelt like I had been smoked. This did not go unnoticed by the others either. When I looked around, I caught Thenal, Omman and the twins sniffing the air. Then they locked their eyes on me and looked like a pack of hungry wolves on the hunt. I just barely got to the bathroom and locked the door.
