Adventures in Scrabble

The Lovely Daughter, despite her insane proficiency in languages (currently watching this) needs a little help with creation and causation as opposed to memorization and so we've been, among other things, putting letters on the Scrabble board.

The Lovely Daughter: D E P. Is dep a word?
Me: No but you're pretty close to a word. Look at your other letters.
TLD: E T G A. (She puts the E on the board.) DEPE. Is that a word?
M: No, but you're really close to a word if you just rearrange the letters.
TLD: (Moves the final E away. Puts it back.)
M: You're really really close. There's a word there with a little rearranging.
TLD: (Lost.) DEPE.
M: Okay, think of a pool.
TLD: Peed?

ROFL! TLD is too legit to quit. That is awesome.

Careful Subby, this is how they start out and then it's all "Oh look I got "Zygote" on the triple letter and double word and triple word".

Next thing after that, she's eating your brain.

TLD came to mind.

Now she has had me buy a whole bunch of Korean snacks on the advice of this kook. She likes none of them. How will I cope with all these tasty treats?

M. Bouffant said...

Is too a word!! Shame on you, lying to a child.

Oh, I've seen that kook before. (Have to keep up w/ the neighbours.)

Who could have guessed that Bouffant would bring the hair products?
