Again I’m sitting in Stansted airport, to be precise, in the departure lounge for my flight to Edinburgh. Will probably have to board soon so I’ll keep this short!
I did buy a lighter for the new BF in the end (found a very pretty, medum-range Ronson one) but have already fucked it up by putting the wrong stuff in 😐 . When I tried it in the shop it worked fine. Only when I took it out this morning, it didn’t work straight away. I had some Zippo lighter fluid in the house so tried putting that in a few times and it still didn’t work. Then my neighbour came round and told me it was a bloody BUTANE lighter! She took it back to her house and tried putting some Butane in, but still no luck.
I fear that I have broken it by putting in the wrong stuff. The spark is still there, but it won’t light at all. CRAP 😦 😦 😦 . It’s such a pretty lighter and very nice cute prezzie. I’ll google and try to figure out if there’s a way of saving it – there might even be some tobacco/cigarette/smoking specialist shops in Edinburgh I can take it to so they can fix it. Surely there’s a way of getting rid of that wrong liquid or clear it all out, then start again from scratch 😐
Ah well. Comes with being a non-smoker. I really don’t know enough about smoking/lighters/and such.
