Daily Prompt: Flames

12 Nov




Well, I am the kind of a person who enjoys the cold.  I am the kind of a person who cannot wait for summer to get over.  I love the winter’s chill.  That’s just me.  I love wrapping myself in layers and layers of clothes to fight the cold.  I love the piling blankets at night.  Winter for me is seeking warmth (indoors).  Winter for me is chilling out (indoors)!!

However, some of my friends have a weird way of warding off winter’s wintry woes.  They make campfire and I am supposed to sit/ stand around it – the wintertainment.  I admit, I do love the crackling sounds the fire makes, I love looking at the wild blazing flames, I love the biting chill that no amount of standing around the fire can make go.

So, why the campfire?  The pragmatic me could never see any good in this practice… NEVER.  The only warming/ heating that happens is to the side that’s facing the fire.  Unless we have 4-5 campfires going all around us, there is no way the fire can actually help us to get warm.  And if it isn’t to get warm that the fire was started then… Why then… oh why?  Why can’t we just sit indoors and wrap ourselves in blankets instead, and speak about fire and flames and make plans to save the world!
