Thinking about being a FF’s girlfriend…I think the absolute worst thing you can do is make him choose between you and fire. Even if he chooses you, he’ll suffer anytime he sees smoke on the horizon or a crummy going by. This past weekend my best friend came to visit. She showed up at my house to find me gone, and a note on the door that said “On fire, back whenever.” To her everlasting credit, I came home at close to one am the next morning and found her asleep in the back of her car…she never once asked why I’d gone out knowing she was coming to visit or why I hadn’t left a more informative note or anything like that…she just asked how it had gone and listened while I told her probably way more than she’d wanted know, then kept me company (at two in the morning!) while I stuffed everything edible in the house into my face, then she woke me up and made me go to bed when I fell asleep in my chair. Now if I could only find a guy who would do the same…
