I like to play Scrabble.
Some games, though, I just can’t seem to get a break. You know what I mean? It’s those games when all you get are one-point letters.
It seems to happen the most when I play on-line with an old friend from high school — she beats my socks off regularly.
I’m convinced she plays with a Scrabble dictionary at her fingertips. If she doesn’t, I’m in deeper %^&@Q$% than I thought. She also gets all — I mean ALL — the letters with higher points. She’s the luckiest Scrabble player I’ve ever come across and I’ve played a lot of Scrabble.
She’s pretty smart too, so there’s that.
I beat her every now and then, but it ain’t easy.
Sad. Very sad.
I did catch a break a few days ago, while playing at my sister’s house. Somehow, I managed to get a 7-letter word with an X on a double letter and the last letter of the word on a triple word for a total of 125 points.
It will never happen again — promise.
When I was younger, and much more innocent, I thought Scrabble was all about making neat words and having fun.
Un-uh. It’s all about the points, baby!
Well ……since I am still younger! I still try to make cool words, lol and considering I was the catalyst that helped you make that disgustingly ginormous word, your welcome for the opening and even more THANK YOU for shocking the crap outta my mother in law… Worth the points you got! In our family I am the least good scrabble player, but I enjoy a good game nonetheless and that was a good one!
Giving credit where credit is due, I must confess that you placing the letter “T” in exactly the right place was springboard for all those points.
Thank you sweet sister!
