When I got there I saw there was indeed a little fire and there was my friend in her housecoat with a shovel. I knew what she wanted to do and only had to watch a second to figure out she had a sharpshooter shovel sticking it straight into the ground and pulling it right straight out, picking up no sand to throw on the flames.
