    SO elegant and So revealing.
    Of course the pressing question is why you were using coal tongs and yet collecting logs for the fire…?
    Were the logs for ANOTHER fire?
    Were the tongs part of a life-size game of Cluedo?

    • Good question. The poker and the logs were last minute additions. I was meant to include everything I had touched in the course of the day and I had indeed touched the logs and the poker. Also, the log basket. But the log basket was dropped as too bulky, which demontrates that, like many things in life, there is an artfulness in the selection. Are you sure there’s no toothbrush ?
