Fire (Day 18)

Welcome to 30 days of our worst nightmares Photographs II. Only 12 more  days left to go unless we die and find out that Hell is a place where you are forced to take a picture everyday based on themes determined by the mind of a mad man. Click to see the list of themes.

And here are all the other people praying for death participating in this challenge: Ziva, MikeWJ, Mo, Meleah nonamedufus, Unfinished Person, Mariann, Malisa, Nora, LaughingMom, Tanya, Elizabeth A, Kristen , Cheryl, Katherine, and 00Dozo.


Mike – Just like Swiss Cheese doesn’t really come from Switzerland, Singapore Noodles don’t really come from Singapore. Sure, you’ll find noodles in Singapore, just not ‘Singapore Noodles’, if you get my drift.

Within a 5 minute walking perimeter from my office, there are 3 different places that make it. When I took the picture I hadn’t yet tasted it, but I soon found out that dude behind the counter outdid himself again.

Ah…the sweet, delicious fire of mouth-burning curry.

Nicky – He was a late talker. But once he started, we despaired that he would ever stop. He talks all the time. All. The. Time. While he plays, while he watches television, while I watch television, while he eats, while I’m on the phone, while he sleeps, while I sleep…

You get the idea. Early on, I admit I would tune out and just “mmmhmmm” during the oh-so-brief pauses. But then I discovered I ended up agreeing to give him chocolate for breakfast, a pony, a dragon, chocolate for lunch, a death-ray gun and other assorted costly or chocolate items.

I needed to find something to keep him quiet (don’t think I didn’t consider a muzzle) and save my sanity. And then I found it.

We have an outdoor fireplace. He talks up a storm as we find branches and wad up newspaper and build up the fire. And then, as the flames grow, he stops.

little boy, campfireFire is mesmerizing. And quiet. And I’m a little worried I may be raising a future arsonist.
