Jon: I’m on fire!!!

jon
My fiance makes me neurotic somtimes….
So, last night I woke up sweating, pushing my blankets away from me into a pile by my feet. This is because Paul is an ice cube, and has recently decided that all windows must be shut at night and that our fan must be turned down to “medium” (!!). It was terrible. When I woke up, my synapsis were a mess, and somehow in my confusion my brain translated “I’m warm” into “Our (gay) condo is on fire!!!”. After about 3 seconds, I figured out that I was just sweating, but unfortunately, I also realized WE DON’T OWN A FIRE EXTINGUISHER! Panic set in. As a first time home owner, this is just something that doesn’t occur to you until you have a panic attack at 3AM. While laying awake (and resenting Paul for being deep asleep) I decided that the most likely place for a fire to begin was the water heater in the basement. I trudged down the stairs in my (seriously hot and sweaty) undies to inspect. What did I find?:

Jon on Fire!

Oh no! Who designs these warnings?! I freaked out and imagined:

    Jon, you’re silly! MOST people sleep with the windows closed and fans off this time of year… because it’s January! Personally, I sleep with 5 blankets, but that’s party because I live in a basement. -Nickey
