  7. If my name was Fire, it'd mean I'd never run out of hot water in the bathroom. I'd never have to wait for a pot of water to boil. I wouldn't have to wear layers of clothes that would restrict my movements when it's cold. I could melt your ice cream if you annoyed me. Hot cocoa will always be hot.

  20. If my name was Fire, people sure would be super sweet to me (or else they might start feeling a bit warm, lol). And in high school, I totally could have made it seem like a had a fever, and got out of classes for the day...oh what fun it would be...

  21. If I were named Fire I would act outrageously all the time so no one could say I was contained. I would radiate warmth for those that needed warmth. My flame would shine light on those in the dark. My heat would help feed those who were hungry.

  25. If my name were Fire, I would be scared to go to the theatre with my friends, lest somebody get in trouble for shouting my name!
    I'd stay well away from shooting ranges.

  29. Were my name Fire, I would probably have to put up with lots of bad jokes, not just from my friends about smoke detectors, sex appeal and camping, but perhaps also from managers who would joke about 'firing' me, or ask me to 'fire away' when I have something to say. As a result, I would probably be able to identify my true friends a little easier, because they would be the ones who didn't make terrible puns every day to my face.
