I am just guessing of course, but I suspect that you did not kill yourself.
At about the same age (4th grade), while working (in the bathtub for safety) with my new chemistry set, I followed all the proper instructions for lighting a match from a "matchbook", and the whole pack burst into flames right there in my hand. I also survived, although my mom was ... considerably stressed as she rushed me (and my somewhat charred and crispy hand) to the doctor.
So, I learned: always question the instructions.
