Tonight I played Trivia at a little pub in Newburyport, MA with my cousin and friend. It's sort of become the thing that we do when I am up in the Northeast for holidays or visits. Trivia is not as big in Nashville (as far as I can tell) but up here it is ALL THE RAGE. Every night of the week you can go play trivia at one bar or another. STUMP Trivia is where it's at. I love it...even though I am not very good.
But, to be fair...I think some people LIVE FOR THIS. I mean, they are very serious about it and get all of the answers right. I think they play every single night.
The questions are not easy questions, either. I mean...maybe I need to read more. I know I do. But playing trivia like this makes me want to go back to school. Like, all of school. Grade 1 right on up through. I need a refresher on every.single.subject.
But we have fun. Our team name is "Small Wonder" (the next Netflix reboot anyone? I'd binge that any day.) We came in 14th place tonight out of 14 teams. HAHAHAHA! The team that was playing next to us was this really classy family...a mom, dad, and their college-aged son. They were getting all of the answers right and looked like they probably all graduated from Brown or Yale or Dartmouth. Then at the end when they announced the top teams, their team name was "Fart Smells." Are you freaking kidding me? Did not see that one coming.
Anyway, I'm going to go now and touch up on my sports, art, literature, and history knowledge. If you have a bar/restaurant near you that does STUMP trivia, I highly recommend that you grab some friends, come up with a really killer team name...sorry, "Fart Smells" is already taken...and head out and play. Even if you come in dead last, you'll still have a blast.
