I have been playing Words with Friends on my iTouch - except with total strangers. I didn't want to hook into Facebook and spam my friends, etc. At first I didn't realize how to play for points and tried to be clever about my words. Wrong strategy. Finally, I started to hit my stride and was matched with a stranger in a very close high scoring game. In my mind, the stranger is a man. Of course, I have no idea, you just see a made-up screen name. Maybe that says something about my psychological state, but I digress.
This man beats me in a final, completely surprising move. By only a few points!
I immediately asked for a rematch and he accepted. And every day for almost a week I've been plotting my triumph.
Finally, I trounced him by 136 points and when the app told me I had won I jumped all around my living room pumping my fists in the air Jersey style and yelling "Victory! Victory!"
Okay, I'm not proud of it, but boy did it feel good. Clearly, I need to get out more.
