where hobbies, hijinks, and capers go bad = my childhood #9

Standard

another summer’s day

after a year or so of middle school

with too much time on our hands

trying to act grown up

 we decided that

we’d lounge around

on the back patio

grill up some food

have some lemonade

do nothing

sit around, eat, talk, be lazy.

but when the fire on our hibachi

somehow got too big

we did the obvious thing

threw it into the hedge

and yes, there was some collateral damage

and no, we didn’t think they’d notice

but actually, they did 

and no, it didn’t end well

and yes, our day of lounging ended rather abruptly.
