One of the blessings we have in being housebound during the recent snow/cold event is the time for games. Scrabble is the favorite, though we have been known to do Phase 10, SkipBo, and Rummikub.
It has been Scrabble for the most part this past week.
After supper as I finished redding up, BBBH said, "Wanna play a game?" I said, "Sure." I should have turned and noted the fire in her eye. For we settled into the game, and it was soon clear that she was playing with a "Take No Prisoners" approach.
Usually our scores are fairly close, each of us scoring in the 300 to 330 range. While she wins her share, imo, I had won perhaps three previous games in a row.
She crushed me. Final score: BBBH - 394; vanilla - 232.
Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall. --Proverbs 16:18 KJV
