Mama Rules As Always

Big Daddy is heading off to the airport right now.  Last night, Middle Son J’s friend Kathy stayed with us so that we could get her to the airport today.  She is joining J in Germany and I’m so glad he’ll have someone from home to enjoy New Year’s Eve with him.

Like always, whenever we have a captive visitor, Youngest Son convinced them to play Scrabble with us.  He knows it’s only a rare fluke when he can beat me, so he has to include at least one other person so he has a chance of not coming in last.  (He will tell a completely different story–like, say, that he usually wins).  Poor Kathy was almost dozing off — it was well after midnight — but we informed her that she could not quit until the game was over and a victor (me) was crowned.

For some reason, Big Daddy will set up the game table in the family room for us, but he always declines to join us in our Scrabble games.  Same with Oldest Son, who by the way, has the highest IQ of anyone I know.  Maybe they don’t have the competitive spirit of me and Youngest Son.  Maybe they’re just scared.  Oldest Son sent me this funny e-mail today as his excuse for not playing with us.  (But I still think he’s just scared!).

    haha yeah i dont know why you feel the need to lie to everyone on the web…i am and always was the champion…and just so everyone knows the only reason she beat me is because i (who was winning the whole game) started easing up at the end because i didnt see the 36 point word on the third to last turn coming

    OMG!!! I almost died when I read this. There’s a funny story that goes back to the days that Chris was in Iraq. We started talking about families, and he told me that if you ever invited me to play Scrabble, that I should accept for brownie points. I love the game anyway, so it wouldn’t have been too much of an inconvenience. Anyway, I asked Chris if you would be upset with words that weren’t really… kosher, and he asked for an explanation. I went on to ask if I had a word such as Clitoris…. and he told me that if I had the tiles for it, then play it. It’s never left my memory, and had to share it with you.

    Not to worry, somuchmore. Other than prying their eyes open and strapping them to their chair until the game is finished, we’re quite hospitable to our guest players.
