We very rarely go out and do things like this, but it sounded fun, and it's the last week of summer break for me so...why not?!
We arrived at Millennial Brewing just after 6pm and it was already getting crowded. I immediately spotted a couple other teachers there, but they were with their own groups so we left them to it after saying hello.
|It's hard to tell but that's a wand I'm holding.|
(Side note: this was the most bizarre thing! The ice cream wasn't frozen the way real ice cream is and almost had a sticky/stretchy consistency. It was good and tasted like ice cream but you could tell it wasn't "normal".)
|Excited to be on the board! There were 83 teams playing!|
I felt like I'd earned my Harry Potter fan club membership.
|Here's a trivia question: do you know whose wand I have?|
As I was at the bar closing my tab, a girl who had been sitting with one of my teacher friends made eye contact with me. I'd noticed her earlier and thought maybe I knew her. We kind of stared at each other, and she said, "You look familiar."
I was like, "I think I taught you."
We exchanged names and suddenly all these memories came rushing back. She was one of my little smarty-pantses, and definitely a kid I remember fondly. She's currently in her last year of undergrad with her sights set on PA school. I was like omg you're old enough to drink now?!
We caught up a bit, during which time Matt had to hold his own on the trivia game. He did a good job! I was proud of him!
|Shoutout to Ashley for the shirt!|
|There were some really clever team names!|
