While many folks play board games when the
family comes together for a visit, we modify our
Scrabble games a bit in the way we keep scores.
We list players with initials, and also add
the date, time, weather, and temperature outside.
We have a mini family history to read when we
next play. Our son is here for a visit and always
loves the competition of words on the board.
Last evening, I pulled out an older game with
wooden tiles and all past scores and the stats
kept. Imagine his surprise to find a game from1980.
After 1983 there was a lag in the information.
I mentioned that some of the missing history
was BC or before children. My husband and I
were both busy with work and children for
the early years. Hence, the missing scores.
Now, whenever we come together, the goal
of the game remains the same: let’s see who
can “destroy Mom” and be the victor in the
game. With a lawyer and nurse, the goal is easy.
So, who won this time? Ha! Mom! But
only because she had the X, the Z and other
high-scoring letters. Poor Dad was stuck
with a Q at the end. Rematch tonight?
