Allow me to clarify: a first date isn’t the only time it’s unwise to brag about how many times you’ve accidentally set yourself on fire.
I could provide a lengthy list of times and places it’s unwise to brag about how many times you’ve accidentally set yourself on fire. Allow me to condense it to this: don’t at any time or in any setting, brag about how many times you’ve accidentally set yourself on fire.
One example: Don’t brag about how many times you’ve accidentally set yourself on fire during your job interview at the propane store…just don’t.
If you’re reading this and thinking that this is all perfectly obvious and doesn’t need to be said; I have one thought to convey to you: you don’t know the same people I know. (And count yourself lucky.)
And this includes bragging about accidentally setting other people on fire…that’s just rude.
Buildings too–structure fires are very dangerous.
One final point of clarification: bragging about how many times you’ve accidentally burned off your eyebrows counts as bragging about accidentally setting yourself on fire.
I’m tired of hearing you brag that you’ve burned off your facial hair so many times you longer have to shave.
I hope this bit of clarification has been helpful.
If you’re that person who is trying to start a fire and you think to yourself: two or three gallons of gasoline ought to do the trick. Just go ahead and step away.
