Every year, our school district holds a trivia night for its staff and their friends and family. All proceeds for the night go to charity.
Although it's not really a costume night, my team has decided to make it one for the last couple of years. We did not disappoint this time.
Preparations began months ago. Lady Gaga’s Little Monsters was our theme
even though the trivia night’s theme was luau.
Other than the dressing up, the best part of trivia night is that a local Episcopal church donates its multipurpose room for the event. For a few of us there’s nothing quite so fun and bizarre than to be selling and drinking alcohol in church.
Upon arriving at the church, we made our entrance. Other trivia goers, dressed in their Hawaiian shirts, stared.
Some smiled, others scowled at our pure sexiness.
Shortly after arriving, it was time to get down to business…drinking our pink lemonade martinis and looking pretty. Oh, and there was also something about trivia.
So we also tried to do some thinking. Which can be tough at a table full of “blondes”!
Our favorite part of the night was in between the rounds when we could strut our stuff.
horrified mingled with our fellow colleagues.
Throughout the night, we were hanging around the middle of the standings showing our trivia prowess. After the the last round, we didn’t stick around to find out, but we pretty much landed into last place.
That is probably what happens when you spend more time preparing your outfit than memorizing trivia. We wouldn’t have it any other way.
