On some days my memory is great and I can remember words to songs that I heard 40 years ago. On other days, I can’t remember where I put my keys! I’ve heard people say, “misery loves company” but for me it’s more that “forgetful people love company”. It gives us something to laugh about.
My forgetfulness is especially evident at our weekly trivia nights at a local restaurant. Believe it or not, my forgetfulness has led me once or twice to study the color of flags before our matches. Yep, I’m competitive. Whether we win or lost it’s always a fun night. Great friends and lots of fun!
Trivia questions can be fun for kids too! Look at the questions below and try them out on the kids (or adults) in your life. The range of questions vary in difficulty from the easy to the not-so-easy. After all, why should adults get all the challenge and fun. Grandkids…. Hope you are ready for some quizzing fun!
For my Wizard teammates, I’ve highlighted in yellow those questions that I remember being asked. However, I don’t remember if we answered them correctly. Oh, my memory!
