The black stuff is ashes...
Burnt pillow, wooden floors are burnt too, from pounding to burnt pillow ...I hope my land lord doesn't see it
Last night after a long nite of partying and drama, I had a little bit of drama myself. I had my normal candle by my bed. I was watchin TV and I guess I dosed off. Then somehow I was woken up by this weird smell. I opened my eyes..then i see my pillow and my blanket ON FIREEEEE. Yes... FIRE... I didn't even have time to scream or swear... First I kicked off my blanket..then the pillow on the floor..Then i picked up the pillow (coz the flames were bigger there and it was easier to handle)..kept smashing it on the ground to put it out. Then I worked on my blanket , threw that against the floor and put it out. But the blanket was still glowing and stuff so i decided to throw it in the tub..put my shower on for a minute..to make sure..the fire won't re-ignite.
Then I was super tired, so I just took my guest blankie then went to bed.
My ah yi came this morning, (THANK GOD), she cleaned up the ASHES on the floor..changed my slightly burnt sheets, sow a part of my blanket cover on to my burnt blanket, and changed my pillow cases.
Last night , right after the fighting with fire thing, I just wanted to sleep. I guess once I felt safe..then I'd be ok to sleep but now thinking back. Its like, if I haven't smelt the burning stuff, I guess I would be burnt? But then how do one wake up from the smell of burnt pillows and blankies?? Weird.. I guess our natural instincts are still here when we need them, hmmm, so maybe I can out run a leopard next time..
My final thought: When I'm getting my own place and doing my own interior, I am definitely getting Non flamable Pillows / Blankets etc. I remember seeing a episode of sixty minutes of how a whole freaking mattress can burn up in 3 minutes and crap..pillows burn better than charcol......
Oh and for those who are reading my blog.. yes.. I mite have been a goner..so be nice to me..and spoil me more..LOLS
