trivial pursuit
it’s so old the answer was

Our friend Robert came over and we hit the vodka and played Trivial Pursuit, which seems a little sad, but we’ve got to the age where New Year’s events are somewhat crowded, tiresome and expensive. Jools Holland’s ‘Hootenanny’ is a good thing to put on as background entertainment since one gets good music, drunken celebrities with not a lot to say and a man with a clock for a head.
We realised that our Trivial Pursuit game was a little out of date when the answer to one of my questions, ‘What European country comes last alphabetically?’ was ‘Yugoslavia’.
Robert won, not surprisingly, since he was getting questions like ‘What were the gifts that the Magi brought to the baby Jesus?’ and I got ‘Who wrote a novel about the closure of runway 29 at Lincoln International Airport?’
It’s an outrage!

It truly is a conspiracy. We played Pictionary. My friend got 'cat.' I got 'cardiac arrest.' Draw that.
