The kids have borrowed the latest edition of the Guinness Book of World Records, and they are having the time of their lives discovering all the superlatives that exist in this world. They were somewhat disappointed that the picnic table that The Pea and I ate off, which qualified for the World's Longest Picnic Table last June, did not make it into this edition, but I told them they'd probably see it in next year's edition. In the meantime, they're getting a real kick out of announcing such trivia as the longest loaf of bread (3975 feet), the most expensive kind of truffle ($1350 per pound), the longest time a male can hold his breath underwater (20 minutes, 21 seconds).
The Pea even made a little quiz about some of the trivia she discovered from the book, and she asked me if I could share it with everyone. I'm somewhat chagrined to confess that I only scored a measly 40% on the quiz, but I'm happy to post The Pea's quiz below (and you can thank me for giving you a clue to question number 10!):
Good luck on her quiz!
