"What-… What now…?"

I really don’t like using bunsen burners. I always make someone else set it up. Ever since the kitchen caught on fire the second time I’ve been really nervous around fire.

But today I got to burn a Q-tip dipped in copper sulfate and once it all burned off I just kind of stood there holding a flaming wad of cotton next to an open flame and I had no idea what to do with it.
