» Out of my depth

in 4th grade
...kids in our class would scare our teacher after recess by hiding in her closet, then jumping out when she hung up her coat. This was endlessly amusing to us, and not too traumatic to her. When it was my turn, I hid in the closet a little before end of recess. I waited, gloating in the closet, planning the devastatingly funny statement I would make when she opened the door. The class returned. The teacher began her lesson...but never opened the closet door. At least a half hour passed. Every moment that ticked by made it stupider and less funny. I began to get claustrophobic. After about 45 minutes, I just came out in disgrace. It was a warm day and the teacher had not worn a coat. Embarrassing.

» Have you ever started a fire?

man, I've had a lot of run-ins w fire...
The first apartment I rented had a gas oven that had to be lit. I had never done that before, so I turned on the gas, shut the door of the oven, and walked away for 5 minutes or so. I figured that would give it time to...well, I dunno. I came back, opened the door, lit the match, and a huge blue fireball flew out of the oven and into my face. Goodbye eyebrows. Man I can't believe how stupid all this was, now that I'm listing it all! DUH!!

» Have you ever started a fire?

oh yeah!
I got frustrated trying to burn a big pile of wet leaves in my yard. I had tried EVERYTHING, and I got bold (read: STUPID) enough to shake a little gasoline on there. I stood back and threw matches. Nothing. I put more on. Threw matches. Nothing! I put quite a bit more on. Stood back, and WHHOOOOOOOOOOM! Fireball, shockwave, almost like a bomb. I'll never forget the sound.

» Have you ever started a fire?

I was camping alone in Idaho, and therefore felt the need for a BIG fire (to ward off bears, etc). So I piled up the logs and torched em. I soon noticed that the heat and sparks rising from the flames were reaching the tops of the (very dry) trees...I could see the tops catching fire, so I very quickly doused my blaze and prayed that it wouldn't spread. Luckily, it died down and no wildfire followed. That's one way they get started though.
