On Saturday night, I won a tidy some of money off of CRM Boy. He actually had the audacity to challenge me in the arena of music trivia. I know, I know, that’s sort of like challenging Mike Mulligan to a foundation digging contest, but discretion never has been the better part of his valor.
The wager came about when CRM Boy addressed the following question to the group assembled around the fire pit:
“What was the name of that Stevie Wonder song?”
I had no idea what song he was referring to and I suppose I could have gone old school but I went with the first thing that popped into my head, which was I Just Called to Say I Love You. (You Stevie Wonder fanatics can get over yourselves, I am sure you would have come up with something cooler, just let me finish my story.)
CRM Boy looked at me for a second and then blurted out, “that wasn’t Stevie Wonder, that was Lionel Ritchie!” He then proceeded to opine on how Stevie Wonder would never sing a song like that and how I was a donk for suggesting it.
Smelling blood in the water, I looked him straight in the eye, shot out my hand and said, “mister, I’ll bet you fifty bucks that it was Stevie Wonder.” Before I finished the word ‘fifty” he was out of his chair and shaking my hand. We drew our mobile phones and thumbed. Within seconds the truth was confirmed and I was fifty dollars richer. Kachow!
To add insult to injury he actually tried to argue that wikipedia was an unreliable source and shouldn’t be used for confirmation. I just smiled… and broke into a rousing chorus of Dancing on the Ceiling.
