She Used To Know That

“What’s that smell…HOLY JEEZ, Grandma! The house is on fire!”

Flames climbed the wall engulfing a spice rack and threatening the ceiling.

“I put water on it!”

“It’s a grease fire, Grandma. NO WATER!”

A nearby extinguisher tamed the blaze.

“Ohh, right.” Grandma scrunched her face, perplexed. “I used to know that.”
