I still had charcoal all over my hand. I was walking down the hall when I saw __. she hadn't seen me. I put on a pained look, grasped my blackened hand and walked over to her.
"Ahhhg... Hey,__ . how are you- Ow!"
"what's wrong?" she asks innocently
"Oh, It's nothing," I respond "I just burned my hand." I show her my blackened fingers.
"really? How- Oh, my... What happened?"
"Well, I was working in the shed, when an appliance caught on fire, I tried to put it out...with my hand."
"oh. It looks Painful..."
"sayy..."she says with a thoughtful look.
I began to laugh. __ became quite embarrassed and wouldn't speak to me for
the rest of the day.
