A Pre-Thanksgiving Laugh

Last week, I used my grill for the first time in a while.  I lit it and went in the house while it preheated.  When I came back out, I saw flames shooting out the bottom of the grill.  That’s generally not good.  I opened the lid to see a massive fire under my grates that was burning incredibly hot.  It was dark and I couldn’t see what was burning.  After a while, the fire burnt itself out. 

The next day, I went outside to see what happened.  I opened the grill and pulled out my grease pan.  I found a bunch of burnt acorns and other nuts in the bottom of the grill.  An enterprising squirrel decided to store his winter food in my grill.  As my wife quipped, “He wanted his chestnuts roasting on an open fire.” 

I hope this story brought a smile to your face as it did mine, singed eyebrows and all.  Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
