When you meet, for the first time, the boy’s girlfriend, and, while eyeballing your kitchen for potential accelerants, and chuckling fondly, she whispers, confidentially, “My first ‘passion’, was pyromania,” as if to say, ‘Ah, the good times we had.’
And, while thinking of your priceless collection of origami hanging in your basement (and, of course, the lives of your children), you’re like, ‘Heh…surely…she’s pulling my leg.’
It didn’t happen, but don’t you already feel better about your day? You’re welcome.
