gratitude-a-thon day 96: Pierce Trivia Night

Here we are, the Nerd team. With our taped up MIT glasses, all we needed were some pocket protectors to at least look the part. We lost, but we did have some inspiring moments ( Peter’s Cape Cod Canal answer won him MVP).

You can’t go home again, but you can go back to your old school. And last night, I went to Jake and Ally’s elementary school for Pierce Trivia Night, with our close friends who still have kids there. The place still doesn’t have walls (it’s an open classroom set-up), it’s filled with loads of people and teachers I no longer know, and the bleachers in the auditorium can still cause back spasms, but the 12 years we spent there are still alive and well. In my memory, anyway. I hope the parents in that audience have as incredible an experience in that building as our family did. Best school in Brookline? Pierce. I win.
