One night, I was about to leave the house to attend a work event. It was winter, and my wife decided she wanted to have a fire in the fireplace that night. She asked me if I‘d light the fireplace for her before I left, and I said “sure, no problem”. I went out and got some wood, stacked it up, and was about to light it (we have a wood burning fireplace with a gas starter) when she came out and said “wait, I don’t want to start it until after my bath. Can you just get it ready and tell me how to light it? “ “Yea, sure, no problem. You take the match and put it over this hole, then slowly turn on the gas with this knob. When it lights, adjust the flame so it’s touching the wood”
I get home a few hours later, and there is no fire.
“ I thought you wanted a fire?”
“I did, but it wouldn’t start”
“Huh, that’s strange. Did you hear or smell the gas when you turned the knob?”
“Yes, but I couldn’t get it to light”
I go into the living room, get one of the long fireplace matches, strike it on the bottom of the box, and light the fireplace on the first try. She’s standing behind me watching and says “Oh, well you didn’t tell me I had to light the match!!”
