spontaneous combustion has some grounding in fact! (Dickens reminds his readers of this in his preface to the novel.)
Considering my experiment, the tragedy of Old Krook reduced to ashes has reminded me that death by fire need not be so mysterious.
So I came up with the following equation:
Candle+Bed+Book+Clumsy reader prone to fits of sleep= Fire Hazard
Also, me and fire: there are stories. In fact, if I ever pen a memoir one of my first title choices is My History with Fire.
If you, reader of this blog, were to write a memoir, what would you have as a title? Comment!!
