Trivia Win

Last night I stayed up late (okay, past nine p.m.), having played trivia at a local wings place with Meetup group friends. Six of us showed up and we appeared to have a good mix of seasoned women my age and a couple of younger women.

Right off the bat, though, we had a problem. No other teams showed up to play. What to do? Simple—we split into three teams. So, it wasn’t ideal for chatting, but we made it work.

I was one of the lucky ones because I had a younger teammate. She knew the 90’s music and artists while I knew stuff like, “At which US president’s inauguration did Maya Angelou read a poem?” and “In the Napoleon Dynamite movie which character married LaFawnduh?” You know, weighty stuff.

We won first place and performed a victory dance. Well, I did a victory dance while my teammate ducked her head in embarrassment, but still…I wonder if that’s why she left ahead of the rest of us?

With just three teams, we finished the game early and then had time to chat for a bit. I had the farthest to drive so I brought my winnings (a $10 coupon for food at the grill) back to Doright Manor and celebrated by taking two Tylenol and going to bed. Ah! Living the good life.

Peace, people.

      1. I bet you still do. I was smiling at your blog, cos some years ago a nieces’ then hubby had a bar and he did this charity quiz night, the MR’s family got upa table. Anyway.. you never saw the likes of the professional quiz winner teams, out in force to sweep up everything. Anyway–to our astonishment– oor humble wee team scubbed them all cos like you say it was the split of knowledge between those at the table. Like I maybe knew damn all about body parts but my lord, I know a lot about films, while someone else knew every sport and tv answer going. It was actually quite funny cos they were fuming while we walked off wi ah these braw prizes.
