we also sometimes play another game--what will the story be? in this game, we guess what insipid story will be discussed with Alex during the interview portion. for example, i might yell out "PROPOSED TO HIS WIFE THROUGH A BULLHORN WHILE RIDING A ZAMBONI." or 'PROPOSED TO HIS WIFE ON THE CNN TICKER.' My default is "Has a very special serving platter."
new dude, manages a cawfee hut, is about to tell the typical "how i met my wife" story. i was alittle disappointed because i had some hopes for this hipster doofus. but then Alex starts "You met your wife because of a tattoo?" and i yell out "MUTED POST HORN" and he starts "I had just recent read the Thomas Pynchon book "The Crying of Lot 49"..." and I yell out "I TOTALLY CALLED THAT!!!" I won. Sadly, he did not say the words "muted post horn" or "trystero," but still. FYI, it was the LADY who had the tattoo
Later, final jeop question was "Modern Languages." Of course, David picks esperanto. I pick ASL to be different. he won. but still... MUTED POST HORN.
