Some Have All the Luck

It’s like the world, or maybe God or some old-school god, wanted Jill to win.  Every time a question came up that I thought would stump her, a clue would pop up out of nowhere.

Like the question, “It took cyanide, drowning and a bullet to the head to put him down.”  Of course the TV immediately talked about Vladimir Putin and she said, “Vlad Putin, rad Putin, ras… ah! Rasputin!”

But this was too much!  The question was, “A 70’s TV family that formed a rock band.”

There was a sound at the window.

A partridge was looking in.

      Thanks. The Partridge Family is typically not the first thing people think of when they think of the 70s, so a hard trivia question but also maybe not the most obvious plot point in a story.

      The Partridge Family was the first thing I thought of when I saw that bird… At least I left “I think I Love You” out of it. Remember when rock songs used harpsichords? Not that David Cassidy was rock…

      Thanks! And I guess I started a bad trend in one of my comments saying “Sean” instead of “David”. I remember the song “I think I love You”, but that’s about it….

      Thanks. Actually, I thought a lot of the takes were unusual this week, but then I saw that some people saw a woman in a wedding dress, not a bird. And others used it as a metaphor or a symbol.

      Thanks. I’m sure The Partridge Family wasn’t that big of a hit in Sweden, and even here I think it is more than half forgotten, so something trivia.
