OH. MA. DAWG. I'm never sitting next to the fireplace again! D8
There's this grate at the bottom of the fireplace, and it doesn't screw in. You kinda have to pop the top in this groove and then slide the bottom on this block, so it's really easy to kick down, which I totally just did.
I was sleeping by the fireplace, all warm and cozy, when I stretched out and BOOM!!! I rocketed out of the living room like someone set my tail on fire. Chanelle said all she saw was a black flash . . . I'm surprised I didn't pee myself! She was laughing so hard, she nearly dropped the laptop!!
Chanelle called me back into the living room, but I gave the fireplace a wiiiide berth. She says I'll get over it, though. It's not like I've never done that before. bol
