Wednesday evening’s Scrabble game was a humdinger, with no fewer than four seven-letter words.
Unfortunately, I had only one of them. Shana got the other three. They were, with the usual lowercase letter indicating the crafty use of a blank tile, as follows: UTILISE (that was mine 🙂 ),UNSATED, INACTIoN, and MINERAL.
The scores were 388 to me and a whopping 493 to Shana. However, I have a dastardly plan involving ‘Fluffbert’ (our mini-vacuum cleaner) and one or two ‘stray’ tiles. It’s either that or, as I am in charge of the scoresheets, perhaps a little of that famous ‘Hollywood accounting’ when it comes to totting up time.
The stakes are high though. I might end up eating bread crusts every meal for a week if my ruse fails 🙂
