Alternate title: Will my frugal ways be the death of me? :eek:
In the summer, for my job, mosquito repellent is essential for anyone not wishing to die of anemia or West Nile virus(or itching so badly he/she might want to). I had made it my habit to carry a pump sprayer of it around, but I ran out. When I went to buy more at the Dollar General Store, all they had was a two for two dollar special of a reputable brand in aerosol cans(saving me at least eight dollars over the drug store price, thank you very much!), so I bought that.
However, yesterday when I opened the car and got a glimpse of the can sitting there, and simulanteously a classic case of furnace face, and it caused me to have a flashback to my quaint and provencial childhood, when we burned our trash because there was no pickup service. Whenever there was an aerosol can in the fire, the damned thing would go off like a small bomb, once nearly blowing a hole in the steel drum we used to burn trash in.
The can does say store in a cool place. The car gets pretty hot. How hot does a can need to get before turning into shrapnel with a bug spray chaser?
