It was a beautiful afternoon with no wind and a nice day to burn garbage. My little brother James is 15 and decided to burn the garbage as usual in the backyard. Suddenly he comes in running, “Dad, Dad, the trailer is on fire!”. Dad jumped up to handle it and alerted my mother who was downstairs at the time. Mom comes up and grabs a large cup, starts to fill it with water, when dad starts rushing her. She hands him the cup of water and dad sees that there is only about 1 inch of water in it. “What the F***, is this!?” Dad just kinda chuckles and shakes his head. Mom says, “you rushed me!”. So she goes downstairs and grabs the fire extinguisher, and they put out the fire together.
The normal moral of this story is, Always have a water hose handy!
The real moral of this story is, my family can laugh at any time, anywhere. 🙂
Too many funny stories my family has, but it is these memories that stay with you forever.
