Our regular Sunday night trivia mates were off in the woods at their annual corporate drumming circle last night, and Catherine was under the weather, so it was left to Johnny, Jodi and I to defend the honour of our trivia team at Babas Lounge.
Fortunately, for the tender souls of our missing teammates, last night was a special “sex trivia” night, and the questions ran the gamut from Elizabeth I to fellatio and everything inbetween.
We got off to a slow start, scoring only 6 out of 10 on the first round. We scored a decisive second round victory, however, with a 9 out of 10 score plus a two point bonus question win, for a total of 17 points out of a possible 20. Which left us on top of the heap, a full two points ahead of a 5-way tie for second place.
The win left us in an odd position: we had a $40 bar tab as winnings, and not enough thirst for alcohol to drink it all in. Fortunately, Catherine agreed to come in as designated drinker: I quickly drove home, she ran over to Babas, and with a few shots of Oban and some help from J + J on the side, the tab was extinguished forthwith.
After a disappointing start to the trivia season last week — we got punctured by a last minute switch from Hermes to Mercury, my fault — this is sweet justice, if only because it leaves us with bragging rights when our cocky young friends return from the shore.
Next Sunday. 8:00 p.m. See you there.
