The Slice

The Wednesday Slice question

How do you decide when to first use your fireplace?

A) When it gets cold. B) We don't have a fireplace. C) Frost on the pumpkin. D) When my fingers feel like knotty pine. E) When I can see my breath. F) Halloween night. G) When my spouse/significant other says “Say, wouldn't it be nice to have a fire.” H) I wait for the first air-quality burning ban. I) We usually wait for Thanksgiving, and because we always forget to open the flue the turkey isn't the only thing that gets smoked. J) The first day I go skiing. K) After I remember to buy a petro-log. L) When I'm finally ready to admit that summer is over. M) Other.
