I had the strangest night last Thursday. I was sitting with my laptop watching Veronica Mars and had recently gotten angry because I finally got an email but it was from GetUp. I mean I’m all for GetUp but for some reason I was basing my entire self-validation at that point on if I got a personal email sent to me in that space of time or not. Anyway a friend messaged saying come to trivia at the leagues club which I figured I was about 20 years too young for but then I was like fuck it I don’t receive emails anymore maybe this is my life now. So I say I’m going and get there and buzz him to find out he’s half an hour away. Also he needs me to sign the team up. So there I am playing trivia by myself surrounded by tables of old people and one other group of under-30s, and to top it all off the guy running the trivia kept coming to give me tips and smiled and said “it’s okay” when I told him my friends were coming later. He honest to god didn’t believe me. Just to prove this situation was real here’s a photo my friend took when she came to grab a T-shirt.
My friends arrived and despite him giving me all the answers we still managed to lose. Moral of the story TV and pizza in bed always wins.
