The War on Matches [24 Aug 2012|11:05pm]

At 10:30pm tonight, I had an urgent need to light some Cognac on fire.

But I had no matches, only a lighter. It felt a little risky reaching into a deep pot with a lighter to start a fire.

So I went out to buy some matches. First to the Walgreen's next door. Then to the CVS. Then to Kappy's (that's a very large liquor store that also sells cigarettes). Go fish. I ended up having to go to Shaw's.

Why does nobody sell matches anymore? I asked at every place -- including at the CVS, when I was standing with the salesman right in front of a pile of charcoal bags and grills.
