UPDATE! Thanks to Bill Heiser for getting the answer right, and commenting. You win! I have nothing for you. But you have the bragging rights on Amanda Heiser Writes for the next week.
Here’s a game for us to play, leave a comment with your answer to the riddle! I’ll reveal the answer on Friday, 31March17 by changing the title of this post.
You need me, though you fear me.
I start life small, but with each meal I become more fearsome.
I never bathe for fear of dying.
My smell overcomes passersby, choking the life from them.
The enemy of water is my friend;
I’ll admit our friendship can get quite heated.
I could be your warmest companion.
I could bring bright light to your life.
Spurn me and I could burn you or leave you cold.
