Remember When

Being the ram bunchous 5 yr old I was I thought that I could do anything and get away with it ,I liked to watch the flames in fire dance around the colors you would see , I just couldn’t take my eyes off of it, So one day I started gathering things I would need to fed my need for the dancing fire first I got a glass pickle jar you know the kind with the big opening at the top ,a bowl, then a stack of news papers that were out back in the alley by the trash can, and last but not least a couple books of matches , now its off to find a good spot, one of my favorites came to mind under the back porch and away I went one thing at a time so no one would hopefully catch on to what I had planed, finally everything in place I got started I would take a full page of news paper and tear it up in strips,with the jar half full I would strike a match and drop it into the jar ,slowly the flames would catch to all the paper and start to go higher till they started coming out of the top then I did it , I would put the bowl on top of the jar to keep the flames for coming out and smother the fire out with no smoke , so no one would catch on to what I was doing smart hu! little did I know my father un announced to me was working on his car in the garage an while he was on his creeper under the car happened to see the light, from the fire in the jar under the porch, so he came up to the porch quietly and squatted down and watched for a moment seeing what I was doing he waited till I put the bowl back on top and grabbed me by the ankle dragging me from under the porch and lit my but on fire , I think it was actually hotter or at least felt like it . That was the first and the last time I got my but whooped by my father and I didn’t play with fire for a while after that either.
