For most people, Shabbos is a time to relax after a crazy week.
But not for my husband Akiva! Not since I started challenging myself to read and translate the Hebrew trivia questions at the back of the weekend paper.
I’m terribly bad at trivia, and Akiva isn’t much better, though he knows almost anything to do with movies. So naturally, we go at it now every single week.
I read the questions in Hebrew, translate them the best I can, and he attempts to answer. Often, the questions are some obscure Israeli thing like “who is Moshav Kipnitzky named after?” To which he’ll answer “Shmuli Kipnitzky,” which is never the right answer.
