A WOMAN who was asked for a light but did not have one now feels like an utter failure, she has confirmed.
Nikki Hollis was approached by a man looking for a lighter while sitting in a park. She fumbled around in her bag and pockets for several minutes, despite knowing with absolute certainty that she did not have one.
Hollis then attempted to create a spark by bashing a couple of stones together that she found on the floor and trying to rub a wooden toothpick into the ground, but lacked the necessary skills to create fire.
She said: “Last time I was at a club, a girl in the loos asked me for a tampon and I didn’t have any. So this time, I crammed my bag full of tampons but sadly you can’t light a cigarette with a tampon.
“Why did I ever quit smoking? What a stupid, self-destructive thing to do.”
