(#97) Jane: Like a fire brigade
I feel bad for Brian, but this is all part of his journey, and he's going to have his share of fun along the way.
A question for you, dear author: Since you use the term Fire Brigade, instead of Fire Department, are you not from around these parts? From somewhere UK-ish, perhaps?
Also, a comment. YAY Alex! By proping the fire extinguisher against the chair, he will be still able to control it. Those are filled with a compressed gas, and there WILL be recoil. Nothing noticable to a human, but pretty impressive to a Joe or a CY. So again, YAY ALEX!
Thanks for writing, Badger! I'm grateful for your support and interest.
I was born and raised in America, although some of my ancestors are British. I'm not sure why I used the term fire brigade instead of fire department. I just liked the sound of it.
I wish I could take credit for being that clever, but I didn't anticipate the recoil issue. I chose the chair because it was the right height--the extinguisher needed to be upright, and Alex needed a way to reach the trigger.
Come to think of it, I've never actually used a fire extinguisher (although I put them all over the house, including the bedroom).
I'm glad it worked out--Alex and I both look smart!
By the way, did you ever get to read SKUNKS!?
I've been working ridiculously long hours the past few weeks, so I haven't read it yet, but I'm looking forward to it!
