Does food obsessiveness give you a trivia leg up?
Last Christmas, my sister-in-law brought over a trivia game for the Wii. I was surprised how many questions were either directly or indirectly food related, and was pleased that my food obsessiveness gave me the winning edge. Since then, my husband and I have befriended a new group who are very keen on board games. Each of my teams has ended up winning, in part because of the number of food related questions that seem to come up in trivia games. People often ask how/why I would know those answers. Has anyone else benefited in this way? Or, is it just a fluke?
