This week, the Coffee Chat question posed by Rory Bore of Time Out for Mom is: "You are in a cabin and it is pitch black. You have one match on you. Which do you light first, the newspaper, the lamp, the candle or the fire?"
Okay. I never act hastily, so I pondered this for a while. I kept thinking, "Why am I here?!" I thought about all of the scenarios for each item mentioned. However, I knew the reality was that I have to light the match first to light any of the others. But wait, there is more.
As I said, I never act hastily. I would not light the match until I absolutely had to, because it is the only one I have! I have no idea why I am here or how I got here, and I may need this one match later. It is possible that I can get through to morning and still hang onto my match. It will be daylight then, and maybe I will be able to find more matches! Or perhaps I can get out of this cabin, since it doesn't seem to have much to offer.
