Monster in the Making
Posted by Casey on August 23, 2007
Let me preface this with I’ve never been much of a player of games. I remember playing Monopoly, Risk, marbles, poker . . . I was a kid sister and my brother controlled playtime, all right? My broken nose is from getting hit in the face with a baseball when I was five.
So anyway, I have a friend who plays Scrabble more days than not. Now before today, Scrabble was just a name of a game to me. I knew it had to do with words and looked something like a crossword puzzle. That was it.
I mentioned to this friend that they were having a marathon of National Scrabble Championships on ESPNClassic today. So there we were watching and I asked questions and she explained and after a while, she got out her board and we played a couple of games.
I think I’m addicted already and I’m truly embarrassed about it . . .
. . . Just kidding.
It just may become my new bad habit, though. I’ll probably start writing using odd words with two to eight letters. Hmmm. That could be a fun exercise . . .
