Q: Doesn’t Gustafer burn everything because he’s so hot, since he’s from the Sun?
A: Not very much. When Gustafer first arrived in Minnesota after his long trip from the Sun, there was a period of adjustment. For a while he would accidentally put some mitten-shaped burn marks on the couch or kitchen table. But with some concentration and mindfulness he can pretty much keep his outer temperature under control. His first Minnesota snow day was pretty frustrating for him though. He initially didn’t take into account his high-heat radiance when attempting to hug a snowman or make a snow angel. So he pretty much keeps it under good control, unless he’s particularly stressed or surprised. His outer-body temperature at rest is approximately 111 degrees fahrenheit. A hot hand does come in quite handy once and a while, particularly on one occasion when a close turtle friend was stuck in a chunk of ice. It’s also a very handy power to have if you’d like your popcorn “hand-popped”. With great power comes… oh, you know the rest.
