All that is noble and good, but I have other things to confess.
Shaun Groves may have bitten off more than he can chew. He’s challenged me to a tournament of champions in Scrabble, to be held in the neutral territory of Nicaragua. I have an unhealthy history in competitive sports and my obsession with words makes me very possibly your worst nightmare when it comes to Scrabble. I warm up with a boxing bag and 3 mile run to the Rocky soundtrack. I’m not afraid. I give it my all. I study the dictionary and pray for divine revelation. I may get beat but I won’t go down without a fight. And when I realized that Shaun and Becky are fanatical Scrabble players, I couldn’t help but start some smack talk. I would really hate to beat a Texan but a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do. Nothing like serious emails about traveling to 3rd world countries followed by this:
I’m not trying to say I’m the queen of Scrabble or anything but what I’m trying to say is— I’ve had some memorable wins.
Well now…I’m the reigning Scrabble champ in my house so maybe a tournament of champions needs to happen in Nicaragua ; )
