Scrabble Fodder, Part Deux

The Scrabble tournament was fiercely fought, but alas; victory was not to be mine or Rog's. After being plied with wine (probably the first strategic move), we began to play. I held the lead briefly, but Don pulled ahead to bring off #1, Bev beat me by 2 points, and poor Rog trailed the pack by about 20. Afterwards, Don told me that in his free time, he often reads the Scrabble dictionary "for fun". Heh. They've turned into Scrabble sharks.

Then the pictures began...Bev made signs a la the olympics for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, and then presented Rog with a "Fodder" sign...she intends to blow that picture up to 8x10 and display it next Saturday, when we meet for a rematch.

Rog has plans, though, to raid his own Scrabble game and smuggle some tiles over in his sleeve.

Bev's hair not only stayed down, but Rog earned a 2 thumbs up. WOO HOO!

Game for those tired of Scrabble:

Place tiles upon the title of the game to change its name. Funniest name wins. Examples: Scrobule, Strabile, Shlobble, Scroblet.

AND he's got a sense of humor. This Rog guy gets better and better!

I can think of about half a dozen guys I've dated that it would've been helpful to have Bev's scalp's input on first. But as my best friend can tell you, sometimes even the most accurate scalp isn't helpful for someone who isn't willing to take note.

Rock on Jodie!

You're supposed to spell words with those tiles? I thought they were for chewing when there are no bones left and you have to break into the game closet to find something interesting to gnaw on.

Wait 'til I tell my humans that they can actually play a word game with those things!
