Remember those awesome wooden commercial thread spools dad got for free from the mill, to use as fire wood? They were all pretty colored and hollow, and they had metal rings on the bases, and if you put them in the fire just right, you could make a little jet of flame shoot out the hollow tip, just before they completely caught fire…
Funnily enough, they also turned out to be a near-perfect fit into the tail-pipe of your Dad’s brand-new VW Rabbit.
Also funnily enough, he didn’t think to thoroughly check the contents of his new car’s tail-pipe after visiting our house.
So, yeah. Sorry about that.
Happy mother’s day!
