Scented Candle Burns Steve's Nose Hairs
March 22, 2001
COLORADO SPRINGS, CO -- Steve "ColoradoGuy" Garufi burned his nose hairs this week while
leaning too close to a candle flame in his Colorado Springs apartment.
The wild berry scented candle, situated on a work desk next to
Steve's computer, was recently purchased along with three other
scented candles in an effort to fight a horrible mildew odor from a recent
flood in Steve's basement apartment.
"I leaned down to sniff it and all of a sudden I hear a crackling
sound and then I realized my nose hairs were on fire. I'm just glad it didn't
burn my naturally curly hair." said Steve.
According to Steve, the burning of his nose
hairs was momentary. His nostrils did
not feel any discomfort, but he admitted he could sniff a smoldering smell
through his nose immediately after the incident.
This scented candle episode is not isolated. Garufi is notorious for
having a peculiar tendency toward smelling
items such as newspaper ink, the pages of a new book and even people's
Sherri Auld of Colorado Springs, who desired and failed to become Steve's 7th Hair Consultant (and has insisted she is not
bitter towards Hair Cosnultant Dawnn), was terse in her comments to Steve:
"Well, (your smelling)
is kinda like a dog…you know how when dogs smell each others'
butts. It just seems strange that you would do that ... so there's some feedback."
Garufi commented that he would be more careful the next time he has the
urge to smell his scented candles and regretted the incident ever
"Here I am sharing my life with the world and people like
Sherrie knock me for it. Gee whiz." replied Steve with dejection.
