I've mentioned this previously, but coming home from trivia to find Miles peering at me from his window is one of my absolute favorite things. I went inside and darted up the stairs. As he heard me approaching his bedroom, Miles started giggling. Once I was inside, I asked him, "Did you hear the garage … Continue reading Year 4, Day 208
Miles may be getting a little too comfortable with crashing my trivia shows...
I got a rare treat during my trivia show at Legion Brewing last night, as Jaclyn and Miles stopped in for a little bit. It's the first time Miles has been to a trivia show in well over a year, long enough that I don't think he could really even remember it, which could explain … Continue reading Year 4, Day 103
There are times, when I'm hosting trivia on Tuesdays or Wednesdays, that my Spotify playlist is suddenly hijacked, causing whatever song I'm playing (Weezer's "Island in the Sun," for instance) to stop mid-tune and yield to a totally different song.

This … Continue reading Year 2, Day 275
Miles made a rare appearance at my trivia show tonight, and unlike the first time he stopped by, he was much more excited this time around. He ran over and hugged me as soon as he entered Legion, and he was on the mic moments later.
I was at my primary job until 6:00 tonight, and with a trivia show beginning at 7:00, I wasn't planning on being able to go home or see Miles this evening. Fate*, however, had other plans, as I left some equipment at home and had to make a mad dash for it between gigs. The … Continue reading Year 2, Day 218
Miles was distracted as I left for trivia tonight and he wandered away from me as I stepped out the door. As I turned my car around in the street, something caught my eye and I looked back to the front door. Miles was standing there, banging on the glass and grinning from ear to … Continue reading Year 2, Day 212
