TELL ME A TALE IN 120 WORDS – Kitchen Fire


Today’s prompt is:  What is the most insane thing you’ve ever done in a crisis?

We were preparing to cook dinner when small girl reached up to the bench, grabbed a jar of honey and dropped it. Everything stopped as we knew broken glass attracts small feet.

We lifted everything off the floor including the plastic garbage bin onto the stove.

Soon an unpleasant smell alerted us to the bin slowly burning.

There followed an argument as to whose fault it was. It went back and forward as the bin gathered momentum, soon flames were coming from it, but it was ‘far more’ important to establish blame.

Eventually, the ‘raging’ fire was extinguished after blame was placed upon me, even though I hadn’t turned the stove on nor lifted the bin on top of it.
