Whats this?


Recommended Posts

Reminds me of my grandma who was born in the late 1800's.

When I was a kid, we would be at her house running around the rooms turning on those round light switches.

Then she would come along and say "close it". (Turn off the light.)

She used that terminology because she grew up with kerosene lamps. And to turn them off, you would "close it"!
