However, the other day was a little different. It made me take notice! I often play people with slightly lower board score, so they can elevate their scores. A good Karma gesture for the times my score plummets. When it drops its a feat to find good opponents willing to play! My objective is always to find a cordial opponent, win or lose! A drop in score can be as simple as a stint with bad tiles which can go on for weeks. At times my score goes up and down like a yoyo!
I avoid playing grumpy pants people! The other day, my opponent grumbled that I was having a lucky day. I had just dumped a full rack of vowels, twice! Both times missing my turn! I'd gambled that I would get better tiles after dumping my seven tiles! Lucky me! I got a
There was no mention of my missed turns to achieve that one big play. No mention that I had to actually compose a 7 letter word from my rack. Most players give a shout out, nice play, or good one. I usually say "beauty", because bingo's are rare!
Then my opponent missed a very good play that would have blocked my next move giving her several extra points too! When I played a high point word in the spot she missed, I was met with capitals, " UNBELIEVABLE!"she typed. As though I was a millionaire who had won the lottery while she was a homeless person in the rain with nowhere to sleep. I could almost hear her breathing frustration and ire through the screen!
My first thought was, why didn't she plug up that triple two turns before when she had tiles to accomplish that! She missed her opportunity to play in that spot! We have the same scabble average so she knows how to play.....she missed it, then groaned that I was having all the luck in the game, play after play not one nice sportsman type gesture. I said nothing.
How many times have you missed blatant opportunities and then looked at those more fortunate for having everything good come their way?

I wonder if that scrabbler looked a little harder in the corners of her own life for the things she might be missing instead of thinking those who play a better rack are just lucky she might be much happier! What would you do to make your own life a little luckier, richer, or better?
Lately we've been cleaning and purging, we have found lost treasures and also had many new things come our way! More on that later!
