auntiemeesh: (dream-wtf)
Just hanging out in the kitchen making some tea, when all of a sudden, I smell something burning, like a candle or something. So of course I immediately jump to worst case scenarios of shorting electrical wires and such. But I follow the smell to the back door and find a piece of burning cardboard in my little enclosed (and roofed over) back 'patio'.

Wow, was I really freaked out now. What the hell? Where did this come from - yes, there are small holes in the 'roof' over my patio but nothing big enough to fit a flaming piece of cardboard the size of a dinner plate. I grabbed a container of water and put the fire out, then tried to figure out if this was a weird accident, some kind of random neighborhood prank, or an actual criminal act.

Turns out the neighbors upstairs are having a barbecue on their balcony (with burning cardboard?) and some of it escaped their attention. So, not someone deliberately trying to scare or kill me. Yay! But holy crap, that seems like a bad plan. Enjoy your fired meats, guys, but please try not to burn my home down in the process, okay?

And now I'm going to sip my tea and pretend that I'm not absolutely, horribly, keep me up at night afraid of fire.
