Went and played trivia with work friends to support the local PTA. Everyone at our table made me belly laugh at least once.
Karla learned a third language: pig latin. The joy on her face when she said, "Y-may? Ame-nay? Is-ay? Arla-Kay!" was precious.
Kelly also knew the name of the most popular coffee chain in Canada, so I can't really thank the BNL fans for that point.
Anne was right and I WAS WRONG, which equalled minus-one point for our team. The question was: "Bah Bah Black Sheep was the working title for what popular book and film?" "Gone with the Wind!" Anne said. I said "No! Tomorrow is Another Day was the working title." Wrong answer. On research, it seems Ms Mitchell also discarded Not in Our Stars, Bugles Sang True, Milestones, and Jettison. ... Jettison?
Marcia, in answer to "What is the state fossil of Missouri," answered "John Ashcroft." She also heard the theme from Chariots of Fire and began running in slow-motion immediately.
Fun night. Have to do it again. Especially if there are Sea Salt Brownies from Trader Joe's.
Still, I have a question. Let's say you are at trivia night, your team ends up woth an 87, and two other teams are tied with an 89. Are you in second place or third place? I say two people share the top spot, so your place is second. Others say second place is unoccupied and your place is third. These people are whores. Smart whores, sure, but whores.
