I run so good against Jamie. I mean, unbelievably (I don't know if that's how you spell it, but if I spelled it that way and played it in a Scrabble game against Jamie, it would be valid. Just. Sayin.') I play at Jamie's place about once a week, after getting knocked out of his tournaments -- either first or second, as is my way. Last week, I extended his play of laters by hooking the e for echoing on the front to bingo and make elaters. One who makes another happy. He, understandably, challenged it. I was wrong. And elater is not a person at all -- it's a CLICK BEETLE!
Dawn's play is good AND Jamie loses a turn.
Fast forward to last night. I have a rack of E N R R T U U. I groaned. I drew the letter closest to A and had the first turn, but with my crap rack, I was worried I would be playing some dumb three letter word for six points or skipping my turn...i.e... "nut." But then I saw "True" Hmm...eight points...still crappy and I am giving up the ever so lovable E...and then I saw Untrue...ooh...I could get rid of six of these ridiculous letters! Woo hoo...done and done.
I put them down...and looked at the r left behind...hmm...if something was untrue...it could be untrue...r?
Hmmm...this was Jamie after all...and I was Dawn...OK! I call...I mean, I place.
"Untruer" 68 points!
He immediately challenged.
I lunged for the Scrabble dictionary, I scanned the Uns and saw untrue...and then there in the definition!!!! UNTRUER!!!
I. Love. This. Game.
