The life of a scrabble junkie

Sharing is caring!

Hello, my name is 4 Hats and I’m addicted to scrabble.

There are many wonderful games out that that I just love to play; like Uno, poker, twister, heck, even scattegories is a good one. But, the end all and be all for me is scrabble.

This wasn’t one of those games that we played much when I was growing up. I was transitioned into scrabble in junior high when I frequently visited a friend’s house after school and on the weekends.  I absolutely HATED English class and my buddy’s mom suggested that we play a bit of scrabble so I could develop an appreciation for words.  Little did she know that I would not only become addicted to the game, but that I would later consider English as my favorite subject and even choose it as my major in college.

Now, this addiction isn’t as bad as it could be, but with the recent purchase of my Iphone, it’s gotten much worse. I used to be restricted to playing it from time to time on my computer, but with the lovely invention of the scrabble app, I now can play it waiting in line at the grocery store, waiting for Sonny Boy to get out of school, at work during meetings(yes, I admit I do that) and even while I’m in the kitchen waiting for water to boil or chicken breasts to sautee. Yup, I got it bad. And I’m not afraid to admit it. Scrabble word finder sites are bookmarked on my computer and now, even on my Iphone. Maybe this can be my one vice? Or better yet, can we have two? I have this problem with shoes that I just can’t shake either.

    Although I loved reading your post, the info contained within that post has put a terrible strain on our friendship *Chuckle* For the record, I hate playing Scrabble. You’d think I’d adore it since I love words and writing, but no!

    Gratefully, you and I have other interests like grocery hounding and YOUR kids…

    Haha! my husband and I are also Scrabble addicts. We play the boardgame very often. He has it on his phone so we will play each other when we’re waiting for a movie to start at the theater, waiting to be seated at a restaurant, or just sitting at home both doing 2 different things. I’ll even take his phone just so I can play sometime, since I refuse to buy it for my phone. It is so much fun.
