Commemorating Trivialities


This day was officially designated National Trivia Day 2019. It’s a shame I missed it–since I have more useless tidbits rattling around my head, than useful information.

Most of my trivial knowledge is geared toward the baby boomer generation. That’s what I remember most. For Andy Griffith Show fans–did you know there was another “Floyd the barber” before the later, more familiar one?

What was Donald Duck’s car license plate number? It was 1313. Was it important to know this? I don’t know. Maybe, to impress others with my vast knowledge, of things I thought were important.

Did anyone else notice that cartoon characters had one thumb and three fingers? Don’t believe me? Check out the “Helping Hand” character in Hamburger Helper commercials.

It’s ironic that I never remember obscure days, like National Trivia Day.  Could it be they’re just too trivial for me to remember?
