Maybe that is why I like that Sex is on Fire song

When I was a kid, I went through my pyromaniac phase.  I would steal my parent’s lighters and blow them up by the creek bed.  My friends and I would go to the local park and use the bathroom that was built with bricks and cement and light entire rolls of toilet paper on fire and then overflow the toilets.  Once I was playing around in my kitchen and lit a handful of tissues on fire using the gas stove top.  Of course when the flames shot up toward my hand I dropped the wad on the new linoleum, burning a big gaping hole in the floor that is still there to this day.  My friends and I stole a fire extinguisher from the pool club house, so of course we had to set fire to the dry grass so we could put it out with the frosty white foam.  We were barely quick enough and came super close to burning down the entire orchard.  I grew out of my fire fixation, but not before daring my drunk roommate to spray his arm with hairspray and light it.  The sight of him frantically waving his arm around trying to put out the flame caused me to collapse in laughter.  That quickly reverted to profuse apologies when he showed me the blisters starting to bubble from his 2nd degree burns.  Don’t play with matches, kids.  Also, don’t smoke.

    I’m happy to hear that I wasn’t the only pyro girl!

    P.S. I reached my 7 year quitting-smoking anniversary on November 1.

    I totally burned down the boy’s bathroom by the football field in high school.
    that ended my pyro faze pretty effectively.

    I think all kids have that pyro phase. You should see the scouts when we have our pack overnighter; you’d think they’d never seen a firepit before. Every one of them has to burn a stick in the fire. Thank god you did outgrow it; I was afraid the next thing you’d list would be of the fart-lighting variety. Yikes!
