2 Things Challenge Fire/Water


The 2 Things Challenge for this week was Fire / Water.
This entry took a little setup, but rest assured, no Dickel was harmed in the making of this image. Be ye warned, however, the glass suffered irreparable harm. It just couldn't take the combination of flaming alcohol (rubbing) and ice cubes. Do not, I repeat, DO NOT try this inside your house. Fortunately I was outside on the patio, the flame was out, and I was moving the glass off the velvet when I heard the, "Tink, tink, tink!" as the top half of the glass cracked all the way around and into several chunks. AND, again fortunately, I had purposefully used a mismatched glass, just in case something like that happened.
