Its official. I am not cool. I am pretty sure I’ve never been hip or rad or awesome. This week though I have proof I’m way behind everyone else in keeping up with the latest trends.
Proof? I started a blog about ten years behind when it would have been cutting edge. I started watching The Biggest Loser this week. It’s in its thirteenth season, I’ve never seen it. I can’t turn it off.
I have an Android phone. I live in an Apple house. This might be part of the problem. My husband and several friends are much cooler than I am and sport Iphones. I’ve spent about a year secretly jealous of exactly one feature. Everyone plays Word with Friends. They all sit around and randomly impress each other with their amazing vocabularies.
This is right up my alley. I was thrilled yesterday when I discovered that Android added the game! (Probably they had a long time ago and I just didn’t know it….more proof).
I promptly started three games with the three people I know who are the most vocal users of Word with Friends. Twenty Four hours in and I am holding my own in one game. The second game is with my spouse. I had to call him and beg him to please play with me. He said something vaguely snide about how everyone was playing that six months ago but they moved on. Something about Angry Birds. The third game I think I may have accidentally deleted right after I posted an amazing 30 point word. Sigh.
Clearly I need an Iphone. Or maybe not. Maybe I should go back to not caring that I’m not cool. I only just noticed this week. Oh wait….its my turn. Any tips on what words start with Q and don’t require a U?
Anyone else? What trend did you catch onto entirely after it was already over?
