I was hoping you'd choose that'un!! I will be hard-pressed to make a quiz though, coz I try not to let stuff like that bother me too much.
However, I have a particular line of thought upon which I *could* base a quiz......pondering, Hmmm.

Tuzilla, would you mind posting that sentence, again, that you put at the beginning of the CQ?
Thanks.

I was thinking about other people's driving.........!
Every day I see some terrible examples of what some folks do behind the wheel, so I am choosing that'un as my "Pet Peeve"

My driving, of course, is perfect

This will be awfully hard to make into a trivia quiz that has actual trivia in it.

... which is kind of what I was thinking when I voted for other topics. No harm, we'll come up with something!

Sounds juicy. The category title didn't come up when I started to build the quiz. I guess it should be available next week?

Do you realize we are going to see 4 things that are NOT pet peeves from Smoke20, each question? Let's see, warm ocean water, cool summer breeze and Scotch. I guess that about does it.

Uh oh. I think I made some sort of statement that if pet peeves was the category, I would make a quiz.

I'm now writing mine, so I wanted to check this thread copy the requested introductory line. But now that a lot of new folks are visiting this forum, it seems like a great time to bump this up!

I had to go looking for this to find that sentence at the top, so guess I'll give it a bump up front.
