The worlds on Fire...RUN!!

Posted 04-25-2013 at 02:50 PM by arguy1973

There have been some really hot summers in arkansas, but one that really comes to mine is the summer of 1980. It was so dry that the ground was cracking open and we didnt have to mow for the entire month of July. As it was in those days, neighbors would show up unannounced just to sit on the front porch and sip on iced tea and talk or gossip, usually both. Well it so happened on one lazy and extremely hot summer afternoon that me and my friend (TJ) were sitting on the front porch, doing our best to stay out of the way of my grandmother, who would put us to work shucking corn of worse, shelling peas. Well we noticed that there was a big black snake creeping around under a shade tree. As we got up to chase it, it slithered into a hole. Well now Im afraid of snakes and would hurt myself getting away from them, But there just happened to be a gallon of gas close by, so we decided to pour gas down the hole and "smoke" him out. So we got some matches and then poured about 1/2 gallon of gas down the hole just to make sure the thing was dead. Well about the time we were pouring the gas, my great aunt pulled up in her old oldsmobile. Not the favorite of the kids in the neighborhood cause aunt sue was a tattletale and liked to boss kids around. Well we decided to to keep about our business as she waddled up and started to give us a good lecture on how we were gonna have to help her fix the fence that her cows had knocked down, due to our throwng firecrackers at them and as she talked, she spit and her face was kinda red. about 10 minutes into the rant i heard a match light up behind me and then heard TJ shout...look out!!.. well gas and matches dont mix well in holes and apparently that hole was a maze, because when the fire hit it, smoke and fire came out of several holes, one of which was directly underneath dear aunt sues patchwork purple skirt..(it didnt hurt her..just blew her dress up, still scarred over that one )she stated hollering.."its here, the end of the world!!" and ran for (actually waddled at a gallop) toward her car and slung gravel trying to get back home...I guess to get on the phone and warn the other Baptists that the endtimes were here.
