“…a flammagenitus cloud in … California” from wikipedia

Across the room, hazy with cigarettes, our eyes lock.  Our judgment may be a bit clouded by too many drinks, (vodka for me, whiskey for you) but at this moment we are exactly what each other needs.  We make our exit from the bar and quickly check in at the hotel across the street.

fire stoked, heat builds

creates impressive display

produces dry lightning
