|What's more memorable than trivia?|
The questions started off easy. Current events and food, I know. TV, not so much. I played for several rounds until a woman came up and said, “Hey how are you doing?” At first I thought it was someone I had interviewed during my previous life as a reporter. But I couldn’t place her face or name. Turns out she was just a friendly person who noticed the lone black girl in a sea of white (I definitely stuck out). She tried to get me to sit at the bar but realized I was playing trivia and took me to a team instead. Some friends of hers, a married couple, were missing members. The next thing I knew a new team was formed, Short Sale.
My super new team worked together to answer questions ranging from how many bedrooms are there in the game Clue (none) to what is the Caped Crusader plus Don Quixote (Batman of la Mancha). Ultimately we came in fifth place. But it was a great bonding experience for us. They even paid for my bill. The couple said I must come back next week. With our powers combined we could place third or higher.
I’m glad I went to trivia night. I most definitely will make plans to come again. And now I have a team to join. If only I could remember their names.
