It was just before suppertime and the sun was finally shining after days of rain showers. I was thinking about our gardening project and how much the children would love it. The frying pan was heating with a little oil in it. As I scraped the chicken off the cutting board and into the pan, the hissing and popping began. Flames shot up all the way to the hood vent overhead! Apparently, the water in the chicken’s marinade made oil splatter catching the whole thing on fire!
I stared at the raging flames in disbelief! Then reality hit…”Oh my god, my house is going to burn down! What if the fire department can’t get here in time? I can’t believe I am going to be responsible for burning down our house!”
