We heat our home primarily with our fireplace. With strategically placed fans throughout the house it gets pretty toasty. The temp hasn’t gotten much past the 30s this last week, so the fire has been going non-stop.
A couple of days ago, stubby hubs hunk, lays down his plan. He always has a plan. This one involves letting the fire burn out. He wanted to empty the fireplace of its ashes and then start the fire again. I thought it made more sense to let the fire burn the rest of the evening and clean it out in the morning. His response was classic stubs, ” no we should do it now. With all of the ash in there it’s not burning efficiently.” Seeing the look of incredulousness on my face he pulls out the big guns, ” I was a boy scout, I know fire”.
What he heard was, “yes you do,” what I meant was “yes you do…..dork.”
