Do you like playing word games? When I was a kid, my dad and I used to play scrabble a whole lot. He was a great player! Well, I’m not supposed to be surprised… he’s a writer. He always won by all the 7-letter words he would put up each move he made. AAAARGGH I hated it! But I did learn a lot from him though!
Today I play scrabble a lot. I guess I’ve become addicted to the game. I’m so fascinated by the words that my computer-opponent would come up with. Most of them I’ve never heard or read in my entire life… hahaha! Just goes to show I haven’t been reading a lot, huh. Just the same, I always lose. When I’m lucky, I win… by mere luck… hahaha! But really, I’m always amused by their vocabulary! Did you ever know that there was a word "Qi"? According to the Collins Dictionary, this means "variant of CHI n 22nd letter of the Greek alphabet, a consonant, transliterated as ch or rarely kh" And I thought the letter Q can only be followed by a U! Looks like my dad didn’t know that word either.
Anyway, aside from reading a lot, I really think scrabble is a good game for those who like writing. Play against the computer… hahaha and improve your vocabulary!
Do I sound like I’m just bored today?
