I've been playing a lot of Scrabble lately. But I haven't been playing a traditional game of Scrabble. That would indicate that my social life has improved. No, I've been playing through Facebook with Jen. So imagine, if you will, a Scrabble board that is 3000 miles by 3000 miles. That's a big Scrabble board.
I'm not sure how many times we've played over the last few weeks, but I do know that she has beaten me every time. There have been a few games where I came within a few points of winning. But I haven't been able to win. While I have been known to be a competitive person, losing this many times hasn't bothered me. Yet.
Although I do think Jen may be cheating. Somehow she constantly comes up with the Z or the Q or the X or the J. These are all the high scoring tiles. If, in fact, she is cheating, then she's an even greater genius than I ever gave her credit for. In order to manipulate the letters, she'd have to hack into the Facebook application. A feat that I couldn't even begin to conceive.
In our current game, I'm in the lead. We'll see how long that lasts.
