All of a sudden I look down to see that my marshmallow is hanging onto the stick by one tiny little gooey thread.
I watch, as if in slow motion, while the melty thread of deliciousness breaks and my mallow plummets to a certain fiery death.
"NO! MY MALLOW!!!"
What to do!?!
In my 8-year-old brain there was only one choice...
Without hesitation I plunge my hand into the fire to save my mallow...
I caught the mallow.
But wait - this mallow was already nice and roasty...
It was a trap!
I thought I had saved my mallow, but what I had really done is squished my hand into a ball of sticky lava!
"AAAHHHGGHH! A BALL OF STICKY DELICIOUS LAVA!!! WHAT DO I DO!!!"
I know - I'll lick it off.
"AHHHGGGH! FART NUGGETS! NOW MY HAND AND MY TONGUE ARE BOTH ON FIRE!"
At this point I gave up entirely on a solution and proceeded to sit there staring at my hand, screaming in an increasingly high pitch.
My Dad - who must have been very amused up to this point - decided it must be time to step in.
He grabbed me, carried me about 10 steps to the lake, and dunked my hand into the water.
I spent the rest of the night whining like a puppy on timeout and saying things like, "Dad, I can feel my heartbeat in my hand."
That said - I would take the lava hand experience over some of these any day.

#campingfail - Camping with cubs, aged 8(ish). Didn't zip the tent shut. Woke up, in the middle of the night, with a rabbit next to my face.

We climbed to the top of a mountain to watch the sunset, then realized it was too dark to climb down and had to get rescued. #campingfail— Eric Ledgin (@iamledgin) August 3, 2011
Went camping - forgot tent. Slept outside - it rained. Got hungry - no food. Returned to car - forgot keys at camp. #campingfail— Todd (@Toddus_Maximus) August 2, 2011
