Tonight, I attended another fabulous Momtrends event in NYC. As I listened to all the wonderful info on entertaining (that I will share at a later date), I began to hear a little crackling noise.
Hmm, Wonder what that is?
Then a funny smell – something was burning.
My friend and fellow blogger, Michelle, @queentob , says very calmly “Don’t move!”
Of course, I move when I hear someone else yell “Fire!”
Luckily, Michelle, caught it in time and on with the show.
As I thought about what could have happened, I felt a sick feeling in my stomach. My new friend Wendy, @mamaonetothree offered me a drink from the trendy punchbowl.
I should have Stopped, Dropped and Rolled.
After realizing that I was safe and my hair was still there, I added some humor to the situation by envisioning the back of my hair like Jake’s girlfriend in Sixteen Candles after they cut her hair loose from the locked door.
How fitting that this happens the week after Fire Prevention Week – a time when local firefighters visit schools and share safety tips with the students.
So just a friendly reminder to always be careful when there are candles lit no matter how old you are. Be Safe!
