Yes, a cute little pillow just waiting to cause a fiery explosion, and burn down my house again.

It was oddly squishy. Like an over filled ketchup packet.

I doubt something that small would burn ones house down.

We have a saying here that roughly translates to "most fires start with a little spark".

Again? Does that mean you've had a house burn down previously?

Yes, our clothes dryer caught on fire like 7 years ago and the whole upstairs had to be gutted back to the studs. If you haven't done it yet this year, make sure you vacuum out the inside of the dryer (not the drum). I usually do it once a year now, and find an inch to half an inch of lint covering every surface. I can only imagine what the one that caught on fire looked like inside, we had NEVER cleaned it since we moved in 8 years earlier.

Yes, all it takes is a little spark and someone not paying attention.

Yeah, everybody made it out ok. Now we even joke about it. Like, 'next time we burn down the house we should have the contractor put more windows in'

I clean the filter out every time I use the dryer.

Try Mac OSX. They say it's safer than more Windows.
