I met up with Justin in the common room of the Wellywood hostel in Wellington. The night was already set for us – Trivia Night at a local bar. His team had placed first the week before, so I was just hoping to make a small contribution to their defending effort.
First off, we had a dare to settle, and Justin made good on it as you can see in the photo above. He and his friends (Mark from England, Justin/James from Ireland) were a riot, and I’m glad I got the chance to hang out with them all.
On to the trivia – Christmas themed questions. I pulled out a few right answers “fox” “Serendipity” and “Jingle All the Way” however Justin and John were the trivia ninjas, helping the team to pull out a second place showing, plus a bonus question. The reward? A $50 bar tab that had to be used that night, and a bottle of champagne (which attracted a newly minted flight attendant in a red dress)!
My favorite moment was toward the end, at a different bar, around midnight, when we all sang along to Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody.” Priceless.
