The problem is...we don't have a firepit. Our kin in Indiana boast bonfires. Our St. Louis kin offers a fancy firepit. Our LA kin offer, well- smog.
We still have a Webber grill that requires CHARCOAL. (Google it) Suffice it to say, that we are often the last ones to be clinging to the tradition of a landline, a typewriter, a TV the size of Texas,
Last weekend, we were sitting around the patio with friends when we decided to give "firepitting" a go --with a citronella candle.
You can imagine how this turned out. A stinky black smoke rolled from guest to guest, choking out conversation and saturating the grilled burgers and hotdogs with a slight lemony taste!
On the upside, not a single mosquito bite was reported!
I do, however, need some new candles.
