4. Love is an Open Door – Questions about hinges
I had to buy a smoke detector this afternoon. After I picked one out, I turned and found the shelf opposite full of hinges. I spent a few minutes looking at them before deciding I probably wasn’t going to learn anything that would help me with future trivia questions.
