Last night, sitting on my porch, swinging in the hammock, playing with the lit citronella candle and a stick that had as recently as 5 minutes ago been a handle for a popsicle, I discovered something:
Popsicle sticks don’t like to burn.
Don’t get me wrong, engulf that bad boy in flames, and, it will burn to a crisp; but sticking it in the candle flame, I found that it took a very long time to actually ignite. More often than not, it wold just kind of smolder with no flame to speak of, until it finally took light.
This should bring a sigh of relief to you all. The next time you’re stuck in a Towering Inferno in the middle of a delicious Creamsicle, never fear, though your face will be charred, that orangey,creamy, goodness will survive unscathed.
