Two guys I have never seen before in my life sat down at a table near where I was seated and they were playing Buzztime trivia, just like I was. I guess I got a little over-exuberant at one point when I answered five straight questions perfectly, and they took exception.

During the next game, one of the guys took the lead because he knew about Armor All and he started celebrating. And I took exception, rubbing my nose with my middle finger as if to flip him off.
