You have three flatmates - so there are four of us. I make that mistake often...

It's tempting to do one with questions like 'where were you when Apollo 11 landed on the moon'...

Hah! Well I was in front of the telly, but only because my parents brought me down specially. I think I was too young to really appreciate that going to the moon might be difficult.
