Pumpkin Lighting 101
Who knew you needed a class in lighting pumpkins?
First step: Don't light pumpkin with the lid on.
Second step: Don't take a butane lighter through the mouth of the pumpkin with the lid on AT ALL EVER and click button repeatedly with no response from the butane lighter in a vain attempt to light the candle inside of the pumpkin. Can you all see where this is going?
Third step: Did I mention not to leave lid on because this could cause gases to build up inside of the pumpkin.
Fourth step: Make sure you are looking away when the butane lighter finally does work because all that gas that has built up will ignite and send out a HUGE fireball that will blow the lid off the cute little pumpkin and send it halfway across the room and also singe your eyelashes, eyebrows, and top part of your hair in the process.
They sure look harmless enough.
This happened to the person I am married to. Really funny only after I was sure he still had his sight. Happy Halloween!
