Read to the end and I promise you will receive……………………………Where does the candle go ~ After the glow?After it’s burned, I need to knowWhere does it go? At night while trying to fall asleep This question I do ponder.It keeps me wide awkake I fear; And my mind goes back to wonder……. Where does the candle go ~ After the glow?I need to knowWhere does it go?
Now, I must tell you that this is not meant to be a stab at poetry; because it would be very bad if it were! Seriously, can anyone tell me where it goes?Out of the very same block of wax I make candles and wax potpourri tarts. When I burn the tarts, the tarts melt and harden; melt and harden; melt and harden. You get the picture – the only thing lost is the scent. I can then recycle the wax and make more tarts. Yeah! I understand that the candle has a wick and that the wick burns and the wick leaves ash and carbon behind. I also understand that if a candle is not perfectly level it can leave some wax behind. Then there are the candles that get a draft on the flame and cause them to burn crookedly and they leave wax behind. Of course there are the candles (and you can still buy them) that you stick in the wine bottle with the basket around them and they drip all the way down the bottle and change colors as they drip and everyone sits around and stares at them and says, “Cool” or “Duuuude” or “Far Out” or “Did you hit it yet?” or “Pass it over here” or “Man, am I messed up or what?” (whoops, I’m digressing) Back to the topic: Where does the candle go? If I am burning a really good candle in a jar when it is completely gone, it is Completely Gone. All that is left behind is the little metal gadget that holds the wick and a tiny piece of the wick – NO WAX AT ALL! Where did it go?

I have a theory about pus/snot/mucouos. When we were in grade school and were being taught about the layers of skin, the teachers thought our young minds were too delicate to inform us that one of the layers of skin was comprised of pus/snot/mucous. Therefore, it has been kept a secret from us and no one but doctors know about it and it is part of their oath to never tell anyone about it. I accept that and I appreciate their loyalty as I have never had a doctor slip up and mention it in front of me.Now, this brings me to my next theory, do you think that all houses come with a layer of wax somewhere inside? If so, who do you think is in charge of knowing about it? I have never been a home-owner. For those of you who do own homes, was it in your deed/contract/whatever it is you get when you purchase a home? If the secret doesn’t come with home ownership, then do you think it is the real estate agent that knows about it. Or do you think it goes higher than that even – do you think it may be the real estate agency? I can’t even imagine anything higher than that. If anyone knows and is willing to slip me the answer to this most perplexing question I would be most appreciative. ~Donna The first 100 responders will be guaranteed a friendship connection ~ Peace and Love (and what was the rest of that saying?) ~Donna
