Words with Friends

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?

    Oh the list of things that I don’t have that all the “cool kids” have. Recently someone made a comment about an item of my clothing being “retro”. I’m pretty sure it was their polite way of saying it wasn’t cool. I feel like such a nerd, much too often!

    I love that game! I too started playing that game after the “cool” kids did and still running behind. I don’t play with people I know; I always do a random opponent. Joe used to play against me, but I kept beating him so he won’t anymore. Even though I have an IPhone, I, of course, got it right before the new version came out. Some day I’ll start playing Amgry Birds, but by then all the “cool” kids will have moved on.
    On a side note~ Qi, I have no idea what it means or is but my opponents always use it on a triple letter or triple word…sigh. Good luck!

    VICISSITUDE : the quality or state of being changeable.

    Such a great word! Not just to make a change, but to be in a state that ALLOWS change… God is using your blog! 🙂

    • Oh that is a good word. Did you know today is Big Word Day? Webster’s Dictionary was first published on April 21, 1828 so today is a day to use big words just for the fun of it. And I’m thrilled God used this blog, what jocundity (noun; a joy and priveledge, great happiness).
