Hubby and I did something tonight we haven’t done for well over a year.
We talk all the time, so it wasn’t that, however, the last time we did this, we didn’t enjoy it. The pleasure had gone, and it was too much of an effort, plus the end result wasn’t all that good.
We played Scrabble.
We used to play this a lot when we were in the cottage, on the boat and also after moving here in 2017. We never play to win, but rather to better our combined score and do the best we can. We even invested in a proper mini scrabble dictionary and have the acceptable 101 2 letter words on a sheet of paper in the box.
Tonight’s game did not start well, our scores were pretty low and on a par with each other. It didn’t help that I was constantly doing a McDonalds and forever picking up Es, Is and Os. I swear there was an extra set of letters in the bag.
Hubby got a triple letter on the J and Q plus a double word on the Z, and I got a double whammy on the X by managing to utilise it twice, one of which was a treble word score.
The end result was a very respectable 585, which is pretty damn good when you consider the highest score of the night was a mere 41!
Actually, it made a really pleasant change from blogging, watching old B&W movies, playing darts, reading the news or playing computer games.
Now to work on tomorrow’s 3TC, Take Seven and of course our Fibbing Friday!
