I read somewhere that you could light a candle with an uncooked spaghetti noodle. I tried it and it worked. This morning I was looking for my candle lighting spaghetti noodle. I think it was thieved by a secret spaghetti snatcher. So, needing a candle lighter, I went into the kitchen to get another spaghetti stick. There weren’t any spaghetti in the cabinet but there was fettuccine and linguini. I picked the linguini because a lighting linguini somehow sounds much better than a lighting fettuccine. The linguini works too for lighting candles. I decided that the lighting linguini is going to be my choice of go to candle lighters. I like the sound of the words. Lighting linguini is goofy and makes me smile. Besides, I think the linguini work much better lighting a candle than the smouldering spaghetti.
