Getting Burned By Fireworks

I remember part of the end of one of my dreams from last night, which took place outside in my parent’s yard, on what I am guessing was the Fourth Of July (Independence Day).

I think that my brother TD and I were in the yard, and my brother TD was setting up fireworks in the yard; and I was probably doing something else that had nothing to do with fireworks.

At some point my brother TD lit the fireworks without warning as I was walking by and so I tried to avoid getting hit by any of the fireworks; which were shooting in the air and some were doing other things.

Unfortunately, I felt that maybe one of the fireworks hit me on the butt or tipped my butt as I tried to walk by, and so I started walking toward the water hose hoping that my butt was not on fire.

I somewhat felt and heard the sound of something burning on my butt, like my pants were on fire, but I tried to stay calm until I reached the water hose.

I reached the water hose but it was turned off and then I could somewhat see & hear & feel the flames even more burning my pants/butt, and I yelled for my brother TD to turn on the water hose because I was on fire.

I panicked and I started trying to stop drop and roll and/or something like that, as my brother TD tried to turn on the water hose, and then I rolled and/or ran to the water hose hoping that it was on now.

I could feel & hear & see that the fire was worse and that maybe I was going to probably have serious burns or die, and in my panic to put out the fire I woke up thinking that I was really on fire for a second or two.

The end,
