It’s the first quiz of the season. The Quizmaster begins the quiz with “John 2:13 Where did?” You have three chapters but chapter 2 is your best one so you jump without waiting a second “Glory 3, please finish the question.” You got the jump! “2:13 Where did… Where did Jesus go? Up to Jerusalem?” “20 points!” What a great way to start the season!
I wish I could say that’s how my first quiz went. I wish I did have three chapters. I wish I could tell you that I wasn’t number 97th out of 130 quizzers. I wish I could say that I quizzed out every round, or at least almost did. But no matter how much I wish, I didn’t. I’ve never quizzed out. I was 97th. I have only the shortest chapter (And not even all memorized.) That’s not at all how my first quiz of the season went, it went more like this;
It’s the first quiz of the season. The Quizmaster begins the quiz with “John 2:13 Wh?” Of course, one of the quizzers on Seekers jumps (a reference jump I might add), they’re some of the best in the country, but you didn’t even jump! That’s your chapter! Wake up! “Seekers 1, please finish the question.” The quizzer steps up and bends over and “reads” the floor (Bends over and acts like the verse is written on the floor) “2:13 Wh… wh…Where? Where did Jesus go? Up to Jerusalem?” “20 points!” And that’s the way your whole day goes. You didn’t jump hardly at all, even though you know your stuff pretty well.
Yup. that’s about it. I did jump. Not much. I did get a few jumps. I even got the questions right a couple times. On the bright side, our team was 4th only to Seekers, Strive, and Surge. I know the names likly mean nothing to you. They’re the best teams in the nation. I have an AWESOME team! Not only are they all great quizzers, they’re really really fun! Let’s meet them shall we.
Allison, (aka Dory), Amy (aka Coral), Timothy (Amy’s brother aka Fang , the third jellyfish), Steve (aka Nemo), Tyler (aka Anchor), Chris (aka Sherman the dentist), our Wonderful coach, Mr. C (aka Marlin) annnnnd ME (aka Flo) That’s us! Seekers of His Glory!
So,I did pretty aweful. What am I going to (try to) do different this month? I’m so glad you asked.
I should have; studied (memorizing at least 2-3 verses and reviewing all of them) everyday. What I did? Not that! I frittered my time away on facebook and, Hrm, Jibe Now. This month, I’m going to study! Everyday this week I have reviewed. I need to memorize! I need to work on my jump, maybe try out a new style.
Jump Fast, Answer Right, Call your mom every night. Maybe we should add “Study Hard” to the old Quiz saying. 🙂
