Sharpening our minds

I’ve been playing Wordscraper (generic Scrabble) on Facebook with my mom since she joined Facebook.   Go be her friend!images

I love a good game of Scrabble- keeps your vocabulary &  mind sharp.  Gigi was complaining that I was winning too many games.  Then all the sudden she starts playing words  like axmen, grosze, praam, piquet, & feod.  Now, I can tell you what an axman is (maybe)- a guy with an ax right?  But WTH are all those other words?  And her latest whopper?  146 points for thiazole!!! CSP’s convinced she’s using an online word generator.  Who knew those things even existed?  Don’t get me wrong, my mom is smart as a whip.  I know this.  But I also know if you walked up to her at the grocery store and asked her about her thiazole she might smack you!  She swears she’s just plugging in letters until something sticks but I suspect there’s more to the story.  She may have a professor tied up in her closet at this very moment. She’s kicking my ass by the way.  She won our last game with over 500 points!  I may have created a monster!
