It’s All Trivial

This weekend Tom and I attended two trivia nights.  We LOVE trivia.  Last night was our 17th wedding anniversary, and we both were thrilled to spend it at our church playing trivia.  (Even though we got 3rd place.  Lost by 2 points!)

The night before, we attending the local elementary school’s trivia night.  It was an 80’s theme, so we were prepared to wipe the place up!  We got 3rd. (There was a tie for first, and then came our table.) 

We love trivia nights because we tend to store a lot of trivia in our brains, so it’s nice to know it can be of some use.  And, there are always one or two jokes that are created at our table that last the whole evening, and make us all laugh until we are crying.

The funniest thing happened on the way home from the 80’s Trivia Night.  There was a guy at our table that I didn’t know, and he was a boyfriend of one of the women at our table.  Turns out he is 25.  Okay, I can handle that.  Until we realized (again, on the way home) that that meant he was born in 1985.  BORN!!!!!!!!  It was EIGHTIES trivia!  He wasn’t even alive for HALF of the decade.  The other half he wasn’t even able to talk!   ha

I always try to come home with at least one piece of trivia that I can remember.  So, you may now benefit from my warped brain.

  • The praying mantis is the only insect that can turn its head.
  • Baby’s name in Dirty Dancing was Frances.

When was the Civil War, Michelle?  I don’t know but the girl characters’ names from Bosom Buddies were Buffy and Hildegarde.  😉
