I decided that my aging brain needed a little challenge.
So when I saw Scrabble on CD for a £10 I thought, "that would be great brain exercise for me" especially as I keep on forgetting words.
However when my computer apponent comes up with words like "AA, Aioli,Hep,Furphies,ID,Ironier, Donga and Fepps, plus many more words that I've never heard off or not even in my two very large dictionaries I decided to stay partially brain dead.
I've been playing Scrabble lately too, I find it very good as a pastime and as I am playing face to face with my opponents, I have had many a good laugh too. We have friendly arguments about whether or not such and such a word exists. But I keep coming up with words such as printing measures and of course words from service life. When I explain what they mean after the laughter of derision dies down. I find the word on the computer and demand apologies all round. By the way I have never won a game in the last twelve months. I think all my partners cheat!
