A family tradition

September 23, 2009 - Karin Elton
I spent the weekend in the cities with my mom, three sisters and my nephew from San Francisco. One of the things we did is play Scrabble — something we have done many times over the years.

When my nephew was a teenager, he was famous for cheating just a little. He snuck an extra letter out of the bag so that he could make use of the triple word score.

So Sunday he had a place picked out for his seven-letter word, “mussing,” which gets you an extra 50 points. My mom’s turn was before his and she placed her word in the spot he wanted. He “helpfully” directed her to another place where she could get an extra point.

He ended up winning the game and keeping up his tradition of cheating ever so slightly.
