On Tuesdays, we play trivia.
“We” is Parkside and Recreation, a somewhat fluid group of Samford post-grads who attempt to answer questions about movies we’ve never seen and music we’ve never heard.
Occasionally we get questions about pandas. We do really well on panda questions.
Parkside and Recreation has never won. We came in third a couple of times, but we’ve also come in dead last twice.
When you come in last at Trivia Tuesday, you get to pick a category for the next week. Our two choices: Harry Potter wandlore and How I Met Your Mother.
We did really well on those categories, as well.
Every week there is a music round, featuring 10 songs that share some common thread. Parkside and Recreation hates the music round. We are too young for the trivia curator’s taste in music and keep crossing our fingers for the day when the common theme will be “show tunes.”
There is a burger sold at the Trivia Tuesday establishment, and one has graced our group’s table every week for the last month. While I have never had it, the speed with which it disappears clearly speaks to its magnificence. I believe bacon jam is involved?
We have a group message thread for Trivia Tuesday. I believe this is what makes it an official “thing.”
We fit in general life updates between rounds. Some of us don’t see each other except at Trivia Tuesday. It’s our chance to play catch-up.
On Tuesdays, we play trivia. And Tuesday is now my favorite night of the week.
