I must blame a little bit of my Scrabble addiction on my sister & brother-in-law. 🙂 A couple of summers ago, when I visited them in Florida, we played Scrabble almost every day. It was such a blast, too, because my brother-in-law invents his own little rules and we were stupid enough to agree to them, after a couple glasses of wine. I hadn’t played my all-time favorite board game in ages and playing it again re-ignited my old flame. (I used to play it as late as high school, with a scrabble dictionary on hand.) It was so nice to indulge in a game with others, who loved it as much as I did. At home, I have to practically beg my hubby & kids to play it.
A few weeks after I came home, I discovered…..Facebook has SCRABBLE! Woohoo! I think I found it accidently…honestly, I don’t remember. Of course, my sister (at the time) and her hubby were not on FB. I asked other friends to play, but alas, they were just not into it. What was a Scrabble addict to do? I posted on the Scrabble discussion board that I needed a Scrabble buddy and…YEAY!
Now, I have so many scrabble games going on at once that it takes a few days to complete them. Not only have I learned a lot of interesting new words — who knew there were so many two-letter words? — but I’ve also made new friends around the country. Love it!!
