Brush with Stupidity  
2000 Personal Account

Necessity is also the mother of severe injury. My husband was on his way to work when he pulled to a stop at a traffic light. He noticed the occupant of the car behind him was holding a lighter up in the air and flicking it on and off, on and off. His curiosity got the better of him, and he maneuvered closer to her at the next light to see what she was doing. This woman was holding sections of her hair over the lighter's flame in a ridiculous attempt to dry it. I am certain this individual will be gracing the pages of this website soon. Ingenuity of that caliber is sure to rear its head again.
