This past night my friend Jimmy Spinner's house caught fire. Well, the good news is everyone got out safely, but the bad news is Jimmy’s old house took quite a beating. I guess the firemen have to break every window in the place to vent the fire, but man it was quite a shocker to see the house wounded like that. They even had to chain saw the damn roof. But hell, I know it won't take too much time before the place is all fixed up and everyone is back.
And once again the folks on my block came through, everyone who lived in the house was offered a place to stay by their neighbors. “An extra room because my son’s in college” or “that old bedroom someone’s daughter slept in before she got married.” Real old school stuff that I always knew growing up here.
And you better believe the first thing I did when I got home was check the smoke alarms and see that the fire escapes were working. Because “fire” never has a friend, and neither does “smoke”.
