Auntie Nikki

We had the trivia night on Saturday. It was me, Kal, my dad, my sister, and Uncle Don and Auntie Nikki. Uncle Don and Auntie Nikki are not blood relations, they are what I term "Chinese Aunties". All the same, Auntie Nikki and my sister are basically the same person. Julie showed Auntie Nikki a photo of her snake. Auntie Nikki looked at Uncle Don and he said, "You're NOT having one." Julie said that Mum had said the same thing. Then they started talking about Auntie Nikki's dogs.

Anyways, the trivia started, and I came into my own with the quotations category. I know no pop culture, but if you want to know what some dead person said, I can tell you. One of the quotes was, "He who lives by the sword dies by the sword." So I wrote Jesus. Because Jesus said it.

Dad was not convinced. "It's Cyrano de Bergerac."

"Not unless he's quoting Jesus." I said.

"I think it's Cyrano de Bergerac."

"Well, I think it's Jesus." (Incidentally, I was, and am, right.)

Auntie Nikki looked at the paper and said, "You know, I really don't think the answer is Jesus."

Dad said, "Well, Sam does, and she's a good Christian girl who reads her Bible every day, so we're going with her."

Auntie Nikki looked puzzled and said, "But I didn't know they had swords then."

Incidentally, Cyrano de Bergerac is the title of the play and the main character, not the author. Go figure.

If not then, then when? x.x

Clearly a modern invention... around Queen Vicki's day I'd say.
