    Children’s: ? Trying to picture Timothy Leary writing a children’s book but it’s not happening.

    Classics: Hercule Poirot

    Non-Fiction: Mein Kampf

    Book Club: Road to Wellville. This game seems very movie focused. That’s the only way I get some of these.

    Authors: ?

    Book Bag: ? I read the word “apolcalyptic” and just assume I don’t know it.

    I always struggled with Trivial Pursuit. Growing up LDS you would think that I would know the first one but I don’t. Mein Kampf I got.

    I knew Mein Kampf and Left Behind.
    I’ve seen but not read The Road to Wellville.

    When I saw LSD mentioned in the first question, I started tripping and answered “Me” to every question. I’m pretty sure I’ll have to stay after school for detention, AND require extra credit to get my Trivial Pursuit grade up to a D-.

      Although I did used to tell my students, back when I was teaching, that they could get extra credit for making me laugh.
