I will take on anyone at Scrabble, the greatest board game of all time. During Mom and Miles’s time here we played about a half-dozen games. My performance was okay, but in my heart I know that no game will probably ever match the most amazing (some might say “luckiest”) one I’ve ever played about a dozen years ago.
I played the word “QUIXOTIC.”
That’s 26 points by itself. Plus a double letter score for one of the high-value letters . . . and a triple word score . . . and the bonus for using all seven letters. It was sweet.
I still don’t know why Lisa won’t play Scrabble with me any more.
Editor’s note: Good thing this month of posting is almost over so that I don’t have to write more inane posts like this one.
