Ben's Exciting Day

Yesterday was a very exciting day at our house. Around 2 p.m., the doggies started going nuts. Ben's mommy went to investigate. As she walked in the kitchen she smelled something burning. The smell got stronger as she went downstairs to the family room and into the basement. The basement was hazy and the burning smell was strong. Mommy called daddy and told him the only thing running was the washing machine. She unplugged it. She then got worried that perhaps it was the furnace burning, so she cut off the heat and at the urging of daddy, she called the fire department.

Mommy assured the dispatcher there was no huge emergency, but there was a burning smell and she could not tell what was causing it. A few minutes later a fire truck appeared... and an ambulance... and a policeman... and the fire chief!

The firefighters pinpointed the site of the smell- the washing machine was burning! After completing their investigation they left..... so what was Ben doing during all this excitement?

NAPPING! Does he remain cool under pressure or what?

  1. Hey.....that beauty sleep is important Mom!!! Just kidding, glad that you found the source of the fire. That is pretty scary to think that a washing machine could catch on fire.
