This week’s photo is shared by Roger Bultot.
I tied my sneakers, plugged the headphones, set the timer on and started jogging. After jogging for 20 minutes I could see some smoke. So I started following it.
I was standing on a street that looked very familiar. People, fire fighters, a fire truck…became visible to me. I started walking and finally saw the house that was on fire.
It was none other than my ex’s house. I asked one of the fire fighters if someone was injured. He said, “No injuries, we reached right on time.”
“How… did, fire ….?”
“The guy, kept an egg to boil… in a micro and forgot about it…completely… what kind of a person does that?”
“Only a fool,” I said in my mind but all he could see – was a big smile.
