I got to play Scrabble with my mom at games.com tonight. She’s been telling me about it for a few weeks now and for one reason or another I just haven’t had the chance to play. I finally managed to steal an hour or so and had a great time. She beat the *#%(@ out of me in the first game and was well on the way to torching me in the second game when my connection died. She has quite the vocabulary!

I remember I used to play backgammon with my dad on Microsoft’s Gaming Zone when that first hit the ‘net. Playing games with them has always been a tremendous amount of fun. My mom and dad are the two smartest people I know. I should force myself to play games with them more often.

There is one comment on this post

  1. Yeah….he is one of the smartest people I know too! I wonder if my kid thinks I’m the smartest person he knows?? It’s between me and Puff Daddy.
