For Fathers Day 2014

by Jim Harrington

Divine guidance. That's why Dad used a blowtorch to set the jug on fire, its contents the “Devil's elixir.”

"Suicide is what it is. And it's like drinking cactus spines.” He laughed when the flames jumped to his trouser leg, stripped naked, and danced the fire out.

Yep, he's crazy, but he's also my dad.
