My son Landon's been playing an iPhone scrabble game called Words With Friends with his friends. He claimed that he had gotten so good at it that he would blow my and Wendell's doors in a challenge. Let me tell you something. I'm a medical transcriber. Words are my life. Yet, whenever I need help with the spelling of a particular word, I'll ask Wendell for help. Soooo, I dug in my closet for the scrabble board that me and my siblings played with kid time, dusted it off, and the game was on!
I was first, Wendell next and Landon last. True to his word, Landon took a commanding lead right from the start, but soon the score started evening out.
Landon used his phone to check on the legitimacy of our words. I learned a lot of new two letter words yesterday. Did you know that there's such things as "Qi" and "Ne" and "Ag"? You can check out more two-letter words here.
"Orzo" scored me 33 points and I took the lead.
I was absolutely incredulous (showing off hard word here) when I pulled the "Q" late in the game.
But not to worry . . . for the remaining 2 rounds I got a Triple Word score with "Drive" and used my "Q" with an existing "I" to form my newly learned word "Qi" and WON DA GAME!!!
