Night had come on quickly, and Nasruddin and his wife had forgotten to light a candle. Thus, they found themselves sitting in their house in the dark.
"It's dark, husband," Nasruddin's wife said to him. "We need to light a candle."
"I agree!" said Nasruddin. "It's completely dark. I can't see a thing!"
"Well, I'm sure there's a candle over there on the table to your left. Hand me the candle and I'll light it."
"I don't think that will work," said Nasruddin. "How do you expect me to tell my left from my right in the dark like this?"
