La Triviata and the (un)Lucky 8

It seems like a long time since we posted this about our upcoming cruise. Along with dining well and striving to bridge the gaps in our bridge knowledge on our Regatta Transatlantic cruise, we enjoyed Team Trivia nearly every afternoon, hosted by our genial cruise director, David Shermet.
The Lucky 8 (Naomi's suggestion) finished in a respectable third place two or three times early on, and remained fairly competitive until the last few days before the roof fell in. Even David, like a sympathetic teacher, quietly returned our final 9/21 score to us privately rather than posting it publicly!
We learned (and promptly forgot) many new obscure facts, but the best part was enjoying each others' company and having fun in our trivial pursuits for an hour every afternoon.
And besides, where else could you learn that the country with the lowest birthrate is the Vatican, or that spermology is the study of trivia?
