For the record, I don’t play Scrabble. I know it’s a classic and beloved game, but I personally don’t care for it. Not one bit.
It’s not that I don’t have a passion for words, because obviously I do. But Scrabble is a game, and games are for leisure. Since I spend all day, every day, drenched from a rain of letters, the last thing I want to inject into my leisure time is another downpour of letters.
I suppose it’s somewhat like being a surgeon, in that the last thing you’d want to do at the end of the day is come home and relax with a game of Operation.
