In my unemployed state, I’ve been playing an awful lot of Scrabble on Facebook — far too much if you listen to my girlfriend.
Over the past couple of days, I’ve been fortunate enough to have the right tiles to be able to clear my rack (heh heh, heh heh, I said “rack!”) and strike it big with the 50-point bonus you receive for doing so, which has propelled me to some huge early leads.
And three times in the past two days, the wimps and wusses I’ve played against have quit the game immediately after I played those big-point words.
Buck up, people. Coming back from a 100-point deficit is far from impossible. I actually managed to blow a 140-point lead, and I fell just short of coming back from being down 150 points.
Is it asking that much to play the game out? Wusses.
