During our scheduled and mandated "collaboration time" today our social sciences department organized a trivia challenge. I missed last year's but was looking forward to this year's.
I got to the library early and one of our bright English teachers was there. I offered to join up with her but was given the cold shoulder--we have our own pretty tight-knit group already, she said, since they'd won together last year. And with that it was on. I started assembling a team, calling ourselves Team Victory.
Thirty questions on a variety of topics, no multiple choice. When the scores were tallied we didn't feel like we'd wrapped ourselves in glory, scoring only 19 questions right out of 30, but it was enough to take 1st Place.
I love the smell of ink on paper in the afternoon. It smells like...victory :-)
