Scrabble Via Email

Okay... so scroll down and take a look at my meez.... I have retitled it Scrabble Via Email... and here is why...

A few weeks ago we had friends in from church. It was a "game day" and there were numerous games going on throughout the house. The "major" game though was Scrabble. Rebecca, and I played the whole time. We threw in various people along the way: Mike, Chandra, Rachel and Robert... but Rebecca and I never budged far from the board. Okay... I'll admit that there were trips to the counter to get a snack or so, but other than that... I was there!

I love to play Scrabble, I guess because I love words. I love to read and I love to write. I enjoy learning new words. So I guess that Scrabble is a natural game for me. I was so excited when I found out that Rebecca loves Scrabble also. Hardly anyone will play with me, and it isn't that I always win...it's just that I am seriously competitive when it comes to this game. Now... as bad as I am... Rebecca is the QUEEN of Scrabble. She has moves I didn't even know existed, and a travel game that she keeps in her car, playing alone!

One day, as we were both having rotten days at work, I emailed Rebecca and said, "It's a shame that we can't play Scrabble while we work!" Within a few minutes I received an email invitation to play Scrabble with her via email. How cool is that???!!!! I guess we have been playing games for about a month now, and as of yet, I haven't won that first game. (Today I am making my move, but I'm not sure that she won't surpass me. I have learned to NEVER underestimate Rebecca!) And while I haven't won, it hasn't really bothered me. I still get excited when I know we are in a game... and it has become a way to stay in touch with my friend EVERY day. When one of us is just too busy to play, or we are out of the "office" for the day, it makes for a long and boring day! So, simply put (finally!) it is just plain fun!

So if you are in need of a diversion, and you love games, visit www.scrabulous.com . It's a neat way to break the monotony and hey... so what if the building burns down around you... there are words waiting to be created!!!
