and the last fall i found some spiffy magnesium strikers and stuff and i was all set, but this year the item on the list (you all KNOW what list) reads Build a fire only using one match (10 pts).
so i did that. it meant i had to find some matches, and you know what? a lot of those little suckers break right off, so the hard part is NOT getting your fire to light with the one match (which is easy if you lay it right) but not breaking the match off or wearing off the burny part before you get it struck.
anyway, i did it.
