Word Nerd

8 years ago

I love word games. Scrabble, Boggle, anagrams, crossword puzzles, word
jumbles... I play Scramble on Facebook like one would play Solitaire
--game after game after game. When the kids call to me, I answer them
without taking my eyes off the screen, my fingers poised above the keys
ready to enter the next word I could find: "Mommy's concentrating.
Don't distract me. Later, okay?" Only when the time runs out (three
minutes per round) do I turn around to see what they wanted... or if I
see that they've managed to keep themselves occupied, I quickly hit the
Play Again button. If I'm on a chat with you and you see some totally
unrelated words pop up on the chat screen, I'm on Scramble and like my
kids, you will have to wait until I finish my round before I can chat
with you.

My name is Buckeroomama and I am a word nerd.
