Light a match and start talking about yourself
August 9, 2010 7:52am CST
I saw this show on TV, it happened few years ago, but I still remember it as it was yesterday. Some teenagers were asked to light a match and describe themselves, without burning their fingers. I was surprised to see that all the teenagers finished their description before the match was half burned. I found it at least curious, because those young people wasn't able to say much words about themselves. They talked only about their phisical traits (though those traits were obvious, it was a TV show...) I couldn't hear a word about their way of being, their hobbies, their expectations... What about you? Light a match and start talking. How much can you say about yourself without burning your fingers?

Hi inu! And welcome to myLot! I don't think I want to play this game!lol I would probably get all tongue tied and burn my fingers! A match burns really fast! I am always burning my fingers just trying to light a candle. I think that I wouldn't be very good at this game, so I think I'll pass!

I think this kind of game isn't for us who talk too much. We should be permited to use a giant match (one meter or longer!) to have enough time to talk about ourselves. I wonder what is the difference. Could it be because, as teenagers, we didn't have cell phones and messenger and online chat? We used just to gather in some nice place chatting about everything, with no worries about the number of words or the minutes we consumed?

Yeah, me too. And not only the fingers, my elbow would be in danger, too. After all, I'm glad I'm not the only one who talk too much about myself. When I saw that TV show, I thought it was me the freak, but it seems there are a lot of women like me. Maybe you saw the TV show, too. It was one of Marina Almasan's.
