The first trivia game (What Do You Know Trivia) was full of lead changes and trick questions, but ultimately, got the best of my team.
The second trivia game (HQ) was glitching its way through two rounds while various family members texted their confusion and dismay and possible answers.
I limped out of one game and tumbled into another and after similar outcomes in both (failure), I called Maga. She was dismayed by the late arrival of her pill bearer and the pain in her knee and however was she going to be able to sleep?
“Your pill person often comes while we’re talking. I bet he’s working his way to you now,” I soothed.
“Why are you calling so late?”
“I couldn’t let a Tuesday go by without hearing your voice.”
“Last week you called on a different day.”
“Fair. The week before last, I called on Tuesday and Wednesday. Then last week, I called on a Monday. But still, if I can talk to you on a Tuesday, I do!”
The positivity in my voice fell as flat as the rest of the events tonight.
What’s a girl to do to combat all that negativity? Do something she knows she’ll succeed at. Me? I folded a fitted sheet. It’s complex and gets the best of most people, but it remains in my arsenal of skills (thank you, Mom), and hey, whatever gets the positivity flowing!
