Cablecar Matchstick built uncommonly comfortable houses out of straw bales. When people moved into one of Cablecar's houses, they tended to stay indoors for days at a time. Cablecar visited one of her houses a couple of weeks after a family moved in. Everything ok with the house? she asked. The people smiled at her and nodded very slowly. Let me know if there's a problem because I want to make it right, said Cablecar. It's fine, they said. Please come in for some tea? I can't spare that much time, said Cablecar. I've got other houses to build.
