How can we sleep while our beds are burning? #burniture

The rite of Burniture burning!
So, I thought I would take a moment to introduce you to a really fun and exciting new trend...started by my boyfriend Aaron and named by me. Aaron has always been offbeat and quirky in the best way possible. When I met him last year, for example, he encouraged me to bring an old dresser I had kicking around over for "burning in a bonfire." I didn't quite understand. I assumed he wanted to take a hatchet to it and use it as wood for the fire. No, that would be a bit too conventional for him. For Aaron, burning furniture holds a much more sacred allure. It's a ritual. A sacrificial rite.

It was the second fire in as many weeks when I asked Aaron if he needed me to bring him any "burniture" for that evening's festivities. Thus was born a fantastic new name for a fantastic new trend...originating here in the crux of Connecticut's redneck zone. Look at how fun it is! Hashtag it on FB and Twitter and Instagram.

So someday, when Hipsters are eating their ramps and drinking their PBR by their burniture parties, remember folks, you heard it here first.
