After dinner tonight, Matthew, Claire, and I played a game of Scrabble.
For the record, I am not good at Scrabble. Yes, I can find words easily, I can often make 5 or 6 letter words. What I can't do is find words that are strategically good or positions for the words I do make or calculate the statistically feasibility of my getting that ONE MORE LETTER I NEED to make a 7 letter word.
I just like to make words from letters. The License Plate Torture game CLEARLY shows this.
In my effort of saying yes to social activities with my friends, even when I what I really want to do is hermit with a book or laptop, despite my clear Scrabble handicap, I said yes to this game.
And managed these opening tiles:
I nearly forgot there was an X, with this brilliant set of tiles.
My kingdom for an I.
