Me: This kid could've struck the match on his shoe, or the cement, or even on his teeth! You know how kids put everything in their mouths.
HF: Yeah, but I don't know of any people that strike matches on their teeth. ha ha ha. . .
(uncomfortable silence . . . the sound of crickets)
HF: Don't tell me . . .
I admit, I tried to light a match on my teeth once. I won't go into it. Anyways, the matches. Crazy, right? Or am I just one of those silly over-protective moms? It just seems like throughout time there are always stories of kids (or adults) that get badly burnt, or houses being burnt down for playing with matches. It kind of freaked me out seeing that.
