I almost died last night

Roc, Dax, Teddy and I almost died last night.

I woke about 3 a.m. to the smell of something nasty.

I'm a restless sleeper and must have thrown my pillow onto the shelf by my bed, where a makeup mirror has been for umpteen decades. This time, it turned on. The pillow covered it. I don't know for how long. I do know that we must have been mere moments from combustion. I am so lucky to be here, healthy, with my cherished dogs.

So I'm asking everybody out there - look at what's around your bed, especially if it's been there forever, and think of the worst case scenario. I was lucky and I want you to be, too. - Hope

Yikes!!! I am always paranoid about burning the house down due to malfunction of some appliance - Never thought of my makeup mirror as one of them! Guess those close calls are put in our path to make us wake up (I mean this figuratively, but I guess it can be taken literally in this case). Glad to hear it was no more than that!!

My heart just about stopped just now. You don't need makeup.

Nobody needs makeup that much. Time to start using the old fashioned bathroom mirror and hope for the best.
