I may be on borrowed time considering all the near misses in my almost 4 years.
One night at the lake we were hanging out by the fire, listening to the mosquitoes buzzing when my human lights this thing on fire. It fizzed for a few seconds so I thought it would just go out but instead, out of freakin' nowhere, it got really bright and made a loud bang. I almost died.
My human and the big guy convinced me to come back from the safety of the shed next door.
And then it happened again. Louder bangs and brighter lights. Seriously. I almost died.
