I will never complain about child proof lighters again

Another story Jae related to me. She had met these two other mothers at
the park. They each have one child. They arranged a play date, and Jae
took James over to the house of one of the other women. They're all
hanging out, and Jae realizes she hasn't seen James for a minute or two.
She does the panicked, where's my toddler head swivel, and sees the front
door is open. She runs out the front door and finds that Maggie is out
there with her boy. Maggie says James didn't come out that way. Jae
rushes back in and runs up the steps to the second floor. I gathered that
Lee, I think that's the woman whose house they were at, does massage
therapy in a room upstairs, and she must have candles or something. As Jae
got to the top of the stairs, James runs out of this room holding up one of
those long, skinny lighters in each hand, grinning from ear to ear. She
said he looked like a gun fighter with a gun in each hand.

I will never complain about the inconvenience of child proof lighters,
