The 98 point word

I’m ashamed. So ashamed. I should run and hide I’m so ashamed. I made a 98 point word in Scrabble tonight. And I lost the game. How is that possible (read columns involving idiocy for help in identifying the cause)? I made the word “spandex”. Granted, I had to use two blanks to do it (silly in hindsight), but it was over a double letter and triple word score, so I thought, “Meh, what the heck?” Plus, I was down by a good 50 points and needed to do something drastic to get back in the game. So, I made “spandex”, which was 48 points, and then got 50 points for using all seven letters – the first time I’ve done that. And yet I lost. Why? Because of a lack of the letter “s” (I had to use a blank to make the “s” in “spandex”).

I swear Heather puts all of the letter “s”es in her pockets. Why? I have never had one single “s” everytime I’ve played her. And everytime I’ve lost. The only time I beat her was playing with her and her Mom. That’s it. And no “s” that game either. It’s not fair. Not fair at all. And then I got the “z” and the “q” near the end of the game. I never could put that “q” anywhere. Just one “s” and I could have beat her. I’ve got to keep working on my game…

Today I was frustrated – and not just because of the Scrabble game. I was anticipating having rehearsal tonight. I walked to school this morning to find out what time I would be called for to find that there’s no rehearsal. I’m a little miffed. A bunch of students have already left Vancouver for the holidays. If I would have known there wouldn’t be rehearsal today, I would have left last Friday. But then I wouldn’t have a job interview this Thursday, so…never mind…

The torrential rain continues. The lack of sun here is slowly starting to get to me. How can people have Christmas in this cloud and rain? It doesn’t feel like Christmas!! And that’s why I’m heading to the mall tomorrow. I’ve got to get those Christmas presents, and tomorrow’s the day. Wish me luck!
