Include Problem-Solving Characters by Ron Newcomb.

A potato is in the microwave. A thing can be hot. The potato is hot.
Persuasion: persuasion succeeds.
Unsuccessful attempt by when the reason the action failed is the basic accessibility rule: say "'Just a sec.'" instead.
Unsuccessful attempt by Bob attacking something: say "Bob stabs the open button ineffectively." instead.
Check an actor taking something hot (this is the hot potato rule): say "Too hot!" instead.
Report an actor examining something hot: now the potato is not hot; say "It eventually cools down." instead.
When hindered by the hot potato rule, we could try examining the noun.
When hindered by the basic accessibility rule:
we could try attacking the holder of the noun;
if the holder of the noun is not the holder of the person asked, we could try opening the holder of the noun;
we could try dropping the holder of the noun.
Test me with "a / Bob, take the potato / a / wait / a / wait / a / wait / a / wait / a / wait / a / wait".
