It’ll make you smarter!
I think I could stop this article right there, but alas, you would all be disappointed that you missed my humor. So I will indulge you in my humor, dry and sometimes misplaced, but humor nonetheless.
There is this game floating around that some of us (you know who you are) are enjoying on a daily basis. If you are not familiar with this game, it’s just like scrabble, only electronic and cooler because it’s on my iphone. This game isn’t a big deal unless you like to spell or in my case, are learning how to spell. So when people say I am addicted I smack them in their face and say NO!
Ok. Not really, but I am not addicted. People that are addicted to things forsake their families, food, and all hygiene. I, on the other hand, consider this game to be bettering my education! Can one be addicted to his education…? Well, I suppose, but if it happens you don’t hear about it very often.
Since I have been playing words with friends I have learned the i comes before e except after c. This newfound knowledge, plus beating someone in a game, can be quite liberating. Liberating from all those things that your mother-in-law said about you… “he’ll never succeed”, “you married a loser”, and “you can’t even spell success“. I’ll show her, I will win several games of words with friends, I will write an article about it, and then after it has been edited by Tim she will see…
If you are not out there trying to get back at a family member or friend that has called you dumb or stupid, don’t let anyone tell you that you are addicted to anything. Unless of course you are, then you should kiss your wife, eat your dinner, and take a shower. After that you need to go, it’s your turn!
I wish someone had told me that I would have enjoyed scrabble (words with friends) a long time ago. I would have stopped beating up all of those nerds that played during recess. I like to look back on those beatings as an education for the kids that don’t know how to play “real” games. I guess now I am the one learning a lesson… it’s a good thing there are a lot of chess players out there to beat up, otherwise I would be a grumpy dude!
