Pop Quiz

Being a homeowner is:
A: Heavenly Bliss
B: The Hardest Thing Ever
C: Super Cool
D: Sometimes Terrifying

Today, the answer is D: Sometimes Terrifying.  And you know why?  Because I ventured into the utility closet to think about changing the furnace filter (no, I do not know how to do it, but how hard could that be?) and as soon as I walked in, the furnace kicked on and streams of firely flames started shooting around inside the furnace! Did you even know it did that?!? In all my years of life on earth I have not once seen a furnace produce firely flames of terror. At first I thought there must be something wrong, that my house was going to catch on fire and all my Christmas sewing would be gone in a flash! But then I closed to door and forgot it was even in there.  Or tried to forget, anyway. I guess it makes sense for there to be firely flames inside... I mean, how else would the air get hot? I guess its just one of those things that you take for granted in life. Like how do marshmallows get so fluffy? We don't ask. We just enjoy.
Just don't even get me started on the leaky water heater.

This made my day! I've seen it only because I used to help my dad in our furnace room (laundry) and one day it kicked on and I saw those incredible flames and freaked out :0)
