You Smell Smoke?
The other day my
friend was sitting in her house watching TV. All of a sudden she heard a
crackling noise, like the sound of paper catching fire. She looked around
quickly. Seeing nothing, she sniffed the air, but couldn't smell any smoke.
Still, the sound was so distinct, she was worried there must be a fire
She decided to check the
rest of the house, and
got up from the couch and went into the kitchen. Here the sound was more
muted so she went into the living room. The sound was still there, but not
in the room with her, so she went back into the TV room. As she got closer
the sound got louder, but still she couldn't smell any smoke. Crinkle
crinkle crinkle. She threw up her hands. What could possibly be making that
She sat down on the
couch perplexed, the sound was still there, but she couldn't see any reason
for it. Then she looked down at her dog, a mild mannered yellow lab. He was
facing away from her with his head down on the floor. She called his name,
but he didn't move. He seemed intent on whatever was on the carpet in front
of him. Moving around in front of him, she managed to lift his head. And
there on the floor in front of him was.......
A half eaten package of Pop Rocks, responsible it seems for the crackling
sound she mistook for fire.
She immediate made sure
all cans of soda where secure and out of the dogs reach. Thus saving him
from Mikey's fate.
