The Wife Hat: Words with Friends

Is the game, “Words with Friends” as much fun if you’re playing “Words with your Spouse?” I don’t think so.

Last night, Ryan and I decided to jump on the mobile app craze. We downloaded “Words with Friends” to give it a whirl. Ryan was against this idea from the start. Why don’t we just grab the Scrabble board, he declared. I told him we were trying something new. I was sick of the Starbucks barista, and everyone else in the world, always asking me if I play this game. Everyone seems to how to play, but us. So, we played.
.
And played. And played. And played.
.
Half way through the game, we realized the game is flawed. My husband, to his credit, brought up a really good point: His word, Uranus was not accepted. However, the word Sun was accepted. His argument was this: “Uranus is the name of a planet. Sun is the name of a star. Why would they accept one over the other?”
.
And in that moment I thought: The cliché IS true! There is a first time for everything. Never would I have thought my husband I would be staying up late talking about Uranus.

One thought on “The Wife Hat: Words with Friends

  1. haha, i have had the same frustration as Ryan had with Uranus. sometimes they won’t accept a blatant word, but mikis makes something up and of course they take it!
