She was about 14 at the time, Bill and Mike couldn’t wait to pick on her. She told Bill she going make his bbq super HOT. He said go ahead she couldn’t make to HOT for him. I don’t know what all she done but it was HOT HOT HOT. He screamed for me to come over to the table. I went over there and he said Danny look at my ears, is Smoke coming out of them.
