Or did he use some matches like these from maanzaad? This is kind of how I picture the arsonist. But since he was seen leaving the scene of the crime shirtless, this guy is way too overdressed. He could never make a quick getaway with all of these clothes. Did he start the fire with a cigar? Maybe.
I was thinking when I saw these cute boyscout matches (also from maanzaad) that maybe if he had been a boyscout in his youth, he might have learned not to do things like burning down a house. Or maybe that's where he learned HOW to build a fire, you know, the kind where you rub two sticks together.
These matches from Lucys Art Emporium. - the one for The Roof, made me think that if our young firestarter had maybe taken his wife out to dine and dance a few times, they might not have gotten in such a bad argument. They would have put a little more romance into their otherwise humdrum lives.
He might have thought twice if he had this box of matches with proverbs (from vintage73) giving him some teachable moments. Like the one on the cover that says "one rotten apple, spoils the whole barrel". Did he grow up wanting to be the rotten apple? He sure is one now.
This set from silkn parachute would have come in real handy. He's got his cigarette lighter, some matches and then a speedy getaway car. He might not have been caught quite so quickly if he had left in this car, instead of hanging around the scene shirtless.
But it seems he didn't plan ahead. Where was his car anyway? He must have thought he could run as fast as this guy on the matchbox from Victoria's Sponge.
Who ever thought you could make up a whole story just from matchboxes?
