Game Master Todd

Okay, I can take a beating and still want to play, seriously. But there comes a point where it's just nice to win, right? Todd beats me in 8 games out of 10 at EVERY game we play. It all started with Skip-Bo almost four years ago. Then Phase 10. Then "Chicken Foot" Dominoes, etc. On and on it went. Don't get me started with Chess--he gets me 99% of the time, after all the thinking and effort I put into it!

So I begin to think, "What is the ONE game at which I could pulverize him?" Then it comes to me...Scrabble! I love love love words and sometimes just browse our unabridged dictionary for fun (hmmm...maybe I should leave that part out). So I figured there was no way he could outwit me in a game of Scrabble. So what happened? The picture speaks a thousand words....

So I thought maybe it was just time to move on to different games. We went out and got Sequence (which we used to play when we were first married) and Rummikub, which I had never played before.

Yes, from the poo-eating grin on his face, you can safely ascertain that Todd continually stomps me at these games, too. Curses! Will I never be victorious?!

Ha ha, that is so funny! No, I'm not laughing at you... I promiss. Doesn't Todd know that it's good manners to NOT always win?! I think it's great that he will even play, Jason refuses. Probably because he knows that I will kill him at every game we play. Hmmm.. maybe we should have a game night and see who the champion is. Yup, that's a challenge Todd.

Yahtzee my friend, dice don't may have a chance! Otherwise, you'll have to just beat Bryce at Mom used to do that and I will not play Scrabble with her ever
