Essay – Scrabbling for words

Thanks for sharing this!

It’s Saturday, and this week’s work in progress is done.

Time for a break.

Too bad it’s raining and pouring.

But no one in Carpenter Country is snoring. We’re playing Scrabble.

Before long the tile bag is empty and most spaces on the board are covered with words. As the points are tallied, the winner smiles. The loser groans.

Still, win or lose, we’ll play again because at the end of the next game the loser may be the happy winner. Lots of fun!

What’s your game plan for a rainy day?
