I have to record my podcast tonight and every week my only job is to think of something I did the past week to talk about and I'm CHOKING
@Louisa this is what you get for telling Justin to choke at quizbowl
@nsmckinnon listen... shut up
@Louisa absolutely—and I cannot stress this enough—not
@nsmckinnon 😌 and now I can rest
I will never choke (unless it's a high pressure moment and I need to remember the name of ultra-famous football man Tom Brady.)
@Quixote171 @Louisa I had forgotten that that happened, so I'm very grateful that you reminded us!
I did get there, in the end.
So only a partial choke.
@nsmckinnon @Quixote171 TOM BRADY can you believe it
@Louisa @Quixote171 to paraphrase Clint Eastwood, I couldn't believe what happened, even as it was happening
We've all been there, right?Knowing you know it, but unable to dredge the name up from wherever it's been stored?Why are our brains built this way?
@Quixote171 @nsmckinnon it's even worse when we know we should know it
@Louisa @Quixote171 I think I have achieved a level of Quizbowl Brain where this is no longer a problem for me, because I'm so used to having to be on my toes during class.
@Quixote171 @Louisa @nsmckinnon satchel page!
