I'll have you know we planned things out extremely logically and thoroughly. You will note that nobody was hurt, and there was no damage to anything we didn't intend to damage? You figure that was an accident, then? Also, that "historical piece of property" is MY property, and it's completely within my rights to burn it down.
And it was quite wicked, really.
Still, you cannot deny that there was a certain amount of risk involved in doing so. Can you imagine what our city would be like if any and everyone who felt the need to burn their house down acted upon that impulse? Needless to say, I am certainly glad no-one was injured.
Thank-you anyways for the books.
It needed burning.
I am glad you liked the books.
So you keep saying.
I will try my best to enjoy them, yes. Perhaps if I don't approve of the content, I'll set fire to them.
it's not like I was part of it!!! HONESTLY!! but you have to admit it was pretty brilliant!!
I know, Ron, and I duly exclude you from all blame. The comments in question were not directed at you, but I apologise if you thought they may have been. I know you have much more sense than that, honestly.
If you consider arson to be brilliant, then yes, I suppose it was pretty brilliant. Thumbs up and all that.
haha yea, it was fantastic, really!!
Now wait just a minute!
Arson: The crime of maliciously, voluntarily, and willfully setting fire to the building, buildings, or other property of another or of burning one's own property for an improper purpose, as to collect insurance.
It's not the first because it was our own property, and it isn't the second because we're not collecting any money out of it. We just got rid of something we didn't want anymore, and that's the end of it!
Well, of course that's the end of it-- there isn't a cinder left.
I will be looking through my texts of city by-laws, if you do not see fit to take my word for it alone. But I am certain there are rules against this sort of thing.
Not to mention quite tasteless.
I can agree with you quite vehemently on that point, Miss Parkinson.
