If you want to put a blanket on the ground (e.g. to sit on it in a park) most times you need to stretch it out (~pull at it) and I think that's where tirare comes in.

Tiramisu is a wonderful "dolce" that will pull you out of any misery.
Imagine walking up to a couple of doors, the left one marked "Tirare" and the right one "Spingere". To get inside you must either pull at the left or push at the right.
But 'tirare' is a very old word that has come to mean a lot of things, e.g (to) pull, draw, tug, drag or (to) throw, shoot, toss, kick.
