""You know, Joey, you told me that Em'ly had wrenches with her at shows, but that her set was the wrong kind. Did you mean that it was a set of metric wrenches and thus would not include a 15/16-inch wrench?""
""Exactly."" Joey had been pleased with himself that he had been able to cleverly discover a technical clue about cars, but it sounded as if it was about to be discredited.
""Well, her set includes a 24-millimeter wrench, and that will fit most 15/16-inch bolts.""
""Yes, but what possible motive would sweet little Em'ly have to fool with John's car?""
