The Ill-Fated Scrabble Game

in life •  3 months ago 

"Let's play a game!" I said. "Something I already know how to play, like Scrabble, or Upwords, or Scattergories."

"Okay," he said. "How about Scrabble?"


I should have known better. He got the J, and the X, and the K, and the Q and used them all to his advantage. He used up all seven tiles in one turn, earning a 50-point bonus for a total of 82 points. I drew the Z late in the game and it was the one tile I had left at the end. He won, 346 to 178.

I taught him how to spell and read, but that was a long time ago, and now he beats me at Scrabble all the time.

I demand a rematch!

( But he'll just win again.)

Would that be your son?
I have my son correcting my English... and this is the one I though was dyslexic because he was so slow to read that his younger brother starting reading first... and today .... he is a young man :)


Yes, it is my son! He learned to read at a young age, and has been devouring books ever since. Now he writes better than I do, and beats me at Scrabble on a regular basis.


Proud moments for sure
We want our kids to be better than us...:)
