The day of labor

This is how our story went, with comments by Owen Cook.
Reuben brought home a new little grill, a cheap one to say the least from Walmart. Reuben tried heating up the coals with lots of lighter fluid, but they wouldn't keep warm.

Here is Bryce holding the meat while Reuben lit the coals again.

" I love fire."
This would be the second time Reuben tried working with the coals. Then Bryce put the meat back on, singeing off most of the hairs on his arms.
"Oh sick!"

After the hair loss Bryce tried poking around to figure out why things were cold and why my chicken was green.
"Meat marinated in lighter fluid, don't do it! Fools all of you!"
Reuben with his leather shoe aka hamburger.
"Have you people no sense!"

Just as we were taking things inside, Reuben ran into the screen with all of the meat and after smearing all over the screen, it landed on the ground. Five second rule?
My chicken, that looks like something out of the cadaver lab.
After a "please help us not die" prayer- we tasted at our own risk.
"I really can't believe these people. Two of them are my parents, I'm not safe!"
No, they didn't wet themselves. They went sailing previous to the whole near death experience. After ingesting a few cups of lighter fluid, we made a quick trip to In & Out to wash down our highly toxic first meal.

"Much better choice."
