Tom and I each have excuses for not knowing the answers to questions in Trivial Pursuit. His: “It must have happened when I was out of the country, on my mission…serving God.” (Funny how the exact two years shift, depending on the question.) Mine: “I didn’t have a TV when I was growing up!” (Okay, we did have a TV but only randomly so I really did miss a few years of pop-cultural stuff here and there.)
I think my excuse causes much more bewilderment for Tom than his does for me. There are several TV shows that I haven’t even heard of. He just can’t seem to comprehend that I had no idea who Rerun was from “What’s Happening.” Well, I finally found a show that HE had never heard of and I am the one who is now bewildered. How could you not know about Land of the Lost? I had nightmares about Sleetstacks and dinosaurs attacking, which is pretty sad considering the incredibly bad special effects that were used in the show. I actually found a clip of the intro and even though the quality isn’t great, I think you can see how truly awesome this show really was.
Good times people, good times.
