Hot time

We went over to Laurie and Sara’s parents’ house tonight. The entire set (including Dan, Uncle Evil’s dread companion) was there so we were able to re-unite the Three Girl Gang. It was also the evening of the annual burning, so there was a massive fire for cooking hot dogs and marshmallows. The resulting ember pile generated so much heat that only a few brave souls could actually cook on it (Laurie tried and after a few minutes she looked like she had sunburn, her face was so reddened). I managed it only by laying down and hiding behind some weeds that had miraculously survived the initial burn. Alice, however, couldn’t wait so she and the other girls had their hotdogs raw. They seemed to think that was the superior choice, which says what they think about my cooking.
