Have you ever won any cool/weird trophies or awards?
Apart from a childhood sporting career best left unmentioned I've only ever won two trophies/awards.
One is a thing amongst a small group of friends where we try to predict on the top 5 songs to an annual radio listeners poll of the 100 most popular songs for the year. I've one once, but one guy wins so often that he now gets a bit embarrassed about it and deliberately chooses wild picks — and still wins. We lay down money each year and we've got a cup we get engraved and everything.
The other was when I got dux of the class in a wine appreciation course. Half the class actually worked for wineries, but they all did poorly, because I was the only one who read the book about vineyards and winemaking processes and shit, whereas they just figured they'd know it all. They were all pretty miffed when I won and was awarded a lapel badge and a year's membership of The Wine Barons, a wine appreciation club. Some friends of mine still give me shit about it and call me the Wine Baron. I keep trying to throw the badge away, but my wife always finds it and puts it back in my drawer.
Tell me about your trophies and awards.
