DH's Barbeque at The Swan and a CISU Party, Brome and Ipswich, Suffolk - July 14th 1996

DH has his summer barbeque up at the Swan, on a nice summer's evening. It's notable mostly for Pauline's idea to do the 'how to stick a glass to a bare chest by setting fire to brandy in it' thing. The glass is filled and lit, ice is applied to the chest and the two brought together. The flames go out and in consuming the oxygen, cause a partial vacuum sucking the glass to the skin. Trouble was, when it was Nosher's turn, it was hard to tell that the brandy had been alight for a while, and so the glass was hot enough to burn a circle on Nosher's chest. The perfectly-round scar survived for about a year.
