While I thought it would be great just to hang out like we usually do, my buddies wanted to go on some kind of adventure.
I asked what everybody was talking about and they were saying how it was boring just relaxing at my place.
I thought it was great especially since we usually had plenty of firewood for the fireplace. Whenever we would run out of wood, it wasn’t a problem to go out back and take turns swinging the axe to split up some more wood. Well, everybody said that we should rent a cabin somewhere in the wilderness. I did have to admit, it sounded pretty exciting. So we ended up booking a place and we packed up all our things for an exciting weekend. We were planning on cooking up some mean dinners over the fireplace and we knew it was going to be fantastic. Well, I had no idea that there would be no HVAC system at the cabin that we rented. We thought it would at least be nice to have an oil furnace, but they didn’t even have that. There was only a fireplace and a wood burning stove. Before a few of my buddies started complaining about the cold, I told them to get the fire going in the fireplace. Next thing I knew everybody was asking where some matches were or if anybody had a lighter. I didn’t even carry a lighter since I had quit smoking and I didn’t have matches either. Just when we thought we were out of luck, I looked in the car and I found one spare lighter in my glove box. I was able to get the fire going in the fireplace and everybody was thankful for the heating it provided.
