Troublesome trivia

I should not have said things were better in my earlier post. They quickly went downhill after it went up.

There was a large crowd of trivia players who came in after Rondo left. Two of them, POST and ENICK, fancy themselves as experts, and while they do well from time to time, they usually can’t match what Rondo and I post.

One game, however, POST was having a great game, and I sucked. Really sucked. I was about to lose it. I wanted to see who this guy was, but Liz intercepted me and took me onto the patio. I finished the game, but I was unable to come back and overtake POST and ENICK, but luckily, POST did not score high enough to get his name on the monthly top ten, which is exclusively my province right now.

I struck back at POST, ENICK and a threesome which was sitting to my right the rest of the night, and I kept adding new high scores to the Countdown board. All’s well that ends well, right?

I went pretty exotic with the food choices tonight. Pepper Jack steak wrap and a chicken sandwich. However, I didn’t have an early tab, so it came out the same as usual.

I’ve got to get out of here in a few minutes and make that long and lonely drive south to Overland Park.
