As we all know, apartments are designed to be our safe havens, as shelter for our rest and what not. Mine is. But it almost wasn’t.
One day, I was home, minding my own business and I decided to cook something cuz obviously, I was really hungry. So, I opened my fridge, leaned in to see what was inside, and I proceeded to fire up the stove top. “Mmmmmm, I’m going to make a nice veggie stir fry,” I thought.
I have failed to mention in my other posts so far, that I have two dogs. Yes, two cutie little patootie dogs whose cuteness, I learned, could be lethal. You can easily do the math:
2 cutie patootie doggies + 1 great doggie mom who’s hungry, addicted to their smooches, with plans to cook = Disaster.
I easily got distracted.
My cutest dog decided he wanted a belly rub, so I gave in. “Oh you want another belly rub?” “You do huh?” “Awww thats a good doggieboy!”
—Then all of a sudden, a huge cloud of smoke started emerging from the kitchen. It was almost apocalyptic-looking!
The fire alarm is blaring at full force!!!
It took, no kidding! 20 seconds for my place to explode in full black smoke and toxic oil fumes.
I bolted for the kitchen, covered my nostrils with my shirt and used some old Christmas themed mitten looking thing to grab the red-hot pan. “$;&/)-@,” this thing is hoooooooottttt!!!!! I grabbed the pans’ handle and threw the thing tf out!!!!!
“Phewwwew!!!!!” I thought to myself.
Well the smoke still kept coming out. It turns out an old piece of charred food was still stuck deep inside the electric coils of my electric stove.
I noticed this, grabbed the cloth covered metal tongs and put my best “operation” game skills to the test.
“Yes!” I grabbed the little piece of charred crap and threw it out the window.
Omg, my hands were shaking!!!!!
Luckily, no one got hurt! I wasnt so much worried for me as I was worried especially for my little babydogs. But man, this dang experience shook me to my core.
Like I said, thankfully this is now just another adventure I’ve experienced as the BWCS.
It was all just a very super fast rush of adrenaline, thats all! Can someone remind me again of who says life isn’t exciting????
All I have to say is that I am thankful my fire alarms (all 5 of them) were working that day. Oh, yes you got that right! I have 5…LOL
Sooooooo….do you have anything to share that may be similar???? What’s your experience with not smelling and potential fires???
Let me know below in the comments!!!
