I honestly thought would be like a riddle I heard once about escaping the room but with a different solution: You look at your reflection on the knife to see what you saw. You take the "saw" and cut the table in two with it. Two halves make a whole. Take the "w" from "whole" to make a hole. You and the man escape from the room through the hole.
But no. Instead, I'm now I'm stuck here with a stranger who thinks I'm crazy as I argue with a stubborn knife about its political views. Its opinion on taxes is absurd, by the way.
