I'm reading a book that used the phrase:

'not worth the candle'

it was speaking of a cat interfering with its people's game so as to cause them to give up, or the cat became more entertaining than the game and the game was no longer 'worth the candle' to continue. I really liked that phrase and thought it could be great fun to experiment with, especially in this day of needing to conserve electric power and other natural resources.

Anyone game? If you try one, post it in Open #15 so I'll see it, as well as others.
