Miles's desire to host my trivia show is getting out of hand.
Tonight was one of those increasingly rare nights (not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing) where I made it home from trivia before Miles was asleep. As I laid with him in bed, he said, "Daddy, can you make me a trivia show like you have?" At first, I wasn't sure … Continue reading Year 5, Day 12
I wasn't too far into my trivia show at Legion last night when my Spider-Sense started tingling. I looked out the window behind me and saw this: DANGER APPROACHES! As soon as he entered, Miles beelined over to me and demanded to "read the answers" to the questions I was asking. I absolutely agreed to … Continue reading Year 4, Day 349
I got a rare...sure, we'll call it a "treat" tonight, when about fifteen minutes into my trivia show I felt a tiny pair of arms ensnare my leg as a "Daddy!" pierced the din of the music and crowd. I was thrown completely off-balance for a moment, as I saw Miles but had no idea … Continue reading Year 4, Day 250
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 209
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 104
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. It's one of the challenges of having a single Spotify profile shared among several family … Continue reading Year 4, Day 89
As a part-time trivia host, I tend to delight in asking questions of people about minutiae. Lately, I've found that the apple has not fallen far from the tree in this respect. As he's learned more and more, whether at daycare or while watching TV, Miles has started to demonstrate a love for trivia of … Continue reading Year 4, Day 46
We made a pit stop in Rock Hill on our way to Myrtle Beach for the Thanksgiving holiday. The initial reason for this detour was to see our friend Alex, in town from Denver, but an additional reason got tacked on yesterday -- I had to fill in as host for a trivia show. This … Continue reading Year 2, Day 275
