Story Sent in by Cindy:
George and I were on one of our first dates (turned out to be our last), doing bar trivia. The question came up about what Santa's reindeer were named.
We put our heads together. "Easy," I said, "Cupid, Comet, Dancer, Donner, Dasher, Prancer, Vixen, Blitzen."
George shook his head, "No, it's Bonner."
"Bonner? There is no Bonner reindeer."
"I'm positive," George said, "Bonner. Not Donner."
"There is no Bonner!"
"How much you want to bet?"
"Five hundred dollars."
He hastily scribbled down the names, including the ridiculous "Bonner" and turned it in to the trivia host.
Sure enough, I was right. George jumped off his bar stool and approached the host, apparently to lodge a challenge against the results. George typed a few things into his smartphone, and kept at it until the trivia host told him that the game had to go on.
When George came back to the table, I told him, "I'll take large or small bills."
"Shut up!" George said, then chugged down his beer. "It's Bonner, and I'll prove it!"
"Then prove it."
He then said, "Yeeeaaaarrrggh!" and then grabbed his coat and ran away.
I still send him the occasional email, reminding him that he still owes me $500 (plus interest), but the money and/or response never arrives.
