It was adorable. And adding to the nice moment was that Geek Trivia co-host Cort Webber, who's a dad to two girls, played with the boy as well, gesturing full-bodily (plus, he's tall) and also even showing his belly to make the kid possibly smile. Cort's willing to be silly to amuse kids. And he knows how. It's a side of Cort we in the public don't usually see.
In many ways, Geek Trivia last night was fun. The team I was on even placed third in Round 1; we didn't place in Round 2 or get the Grand Prize, but we played well on a strong night and had fun doing so.
I can sometimes get too spun-up at trivia, too argumentative; I can have personality collisions, and I get less comfortable and less happy when that happens. I was fine last night. It was a feel-good night. Also a visit-with-good-people night.
