Scrabbled

This was an e-mail I got from my sister:

A has never played Scrabble before, but Santa brought it for her for Christmas. She was driving us crazy at first - how do you play? what do you do? what are these pieces for? who goes when? I don't know hooooooww to plaaaaaayyyy!!! She won first turn, and we FINALLY got her to pull seven letters out of the bag, and the first thing she said was, "I'll NEEEEEEVER be able to make words with these letters." We told her to turn the letters around so we could see and help her, and here's exactly what she had:



Rope! Of course.*

*And the Scrabble nerd in me needs to add: peer, prone, nor, pore, ore, pone, one, on, pee, peen, pen, poor, roe...

Ah! I *knew* there were others! Should have gone back. LOL

I was always the kid that won the prize for most words found in another word, when the teacher would post a long word on the board... and I'm oddly, oddly proud of that fact!

Though it does come in handy in Scrabble.

Hehehe.
I love scrabble. Sometimes my husband and I play "dirty words" only scrabble. That would have been an awesome first draw of letters for our game!
