Sunny warm day, lovely Easter dinner…
everything went well until helping
to extinguish a smoldering fire
in a neighboring horse pasture.
Later report: someone threw a burning
bottle to start the fire not burning trash.
There we were doing our civic duty
trying to put the fire out in my red heels.
I was so happy when I first got them.
Note the use of past tense: was
sniff, sniff, sob......
RIP red shoes…
Please observe a moment of silence.
Prematurely extinguished before their time
due to burning hay field, burning dried horse
droppings… let alone the hose water spray!
Now they are flamed manure soggy heels
so beyond wiping off to keep wearing them.
I learned two things tonight:
1) Horse manure is flammable
2) I need a new pair of red heels.
Let us bow our heads again for a moment of silence
because: Damn! I missed meeting the cute firemen!
