I just walked in the door from a day at school and thought to myself, "Wow! My house smells delectable. I'm so glad I got those Yankee candles."
I checked my email, remembered that I missed an episode of Glee and it would be on Hulu, so I decided to make some popcorn for me & Zooey and snuggle up.
Went over to the microwave, glanced at the candle on the stove... and realized it was still burning. From when I lit it last night.
THAT could have ended poorly...
