Just thought I'd report: Mike and I played two games of Scrabble last evening. We were going to watch a video that we'd seen before, but it just sounded too tiring, so we got out the Scrabble game and the helpful little turntable. I won the first game. Mike says I always win, but it's not true. He won the second game.
We used to play with a sweet older lady named Eloise. She'd have Mike and me over when we were a young married couple. She heard we liked Scrabble. She would feed us. We'd do the dishes, then get right to playing Scrabble. I may have mentioned this before, but she was a Scrabble champ! She was one of the sweetest ladies I ever knew. But she killed us at Scrabble every time! She'd put down a couple letters and score about 50 points and the coolest thing was she did it so sweetly! Now, Mike and I never play a game of Scrabble without remembering Eloise's sweet hospitality and amazing Scrabble skills! Since Mike won a game last night, I may have a more willing Scrabble partner! It's funny how competitive some folks get. Mike likes to win. (Or does Mike not like to lose... to me?) I just like putting words together win or lose! What a fun game!
