Tonight, since it was Tuesday, I went to the Loft in San Jose for trivia, as I do every Tuesday.
Last week, The Resident Shrink, The Rocket Scientist and I had managed to not merely beat but pulverize The Gringos, who have been the dominating force in Loft bar trivia all year. We felt pretty good about it.
Tonight, i managed to beat the Gringos (at full strength -- four members) single-handedly. We were tied coming into the last round, where I picked up 11 points to their 8.
Afterwards, I heard them grumbling among themselves that this was the first time that they had lost two games in a row. They were cranky about having to shell out for all of their dinner, rather than part of it.*
Oh, poor babies. I feel so sorry for them.
Hopefully, next week I can make it three weeks in a row.**
*This is not to say the were bad sports. On the contrary, they were very gracious to me and congratulated me for a game well played. They were just grumbling among themselves.
**See how hard this blogging every day thing is? I played on Tuesday night, November 1, but since I was caught up in other things I ended up posting it a few minutes after midnight, meaning that it was posted on November 2. Rats.
