Tonight, Thing One and I ate dinner with a fire in the fireplace as a background. He was in charge of building the fire, while I was in charge of cooking the dinner.
Shortly after starting the fire, Thing One asked about the flue. I told him "push it forward." He did, and the fire alarm went off.
So, readers, here's the question. When I said "push it forward," I meant "push it away from you." Thing One says that "push it forward" means pushing it towards yourself.
Which of us is right?
