my words with friends user name is “roenn”. let’s play.
let’s start this off with the less fun and less important matches. wins 30, 31, and 32 came by forfeit. vicgar, despite us having a tie score, quit on me after i used one of my normal blocking words “ae.” breanna, from victory five, decided to challenge me and it was just unlucky. i got two blanks and an s and used all seven tiles to hit a “seizing” and just kept the pressure on so tight that she understandably resigned. i don’t think she’s going to try again, unfortunately. manda resigned on me in what was turing out to be an exciting game. it’s analogous to getting blue balls really. just, you know, it’s for a game of words with friends.
now to the fun part. i’ve never beaten this girl erica who found my user name on the dating website okcupid.com. i gave myself one more chance to beat her after failing twice. i studied my last two games with her and i decided to go with the phone booth strategy. during our last matches, she confided with me that whilst playing the word “deformer,” she was singing the song “informer” by 90’s canadian hip hop artist snow. from then on, i jokingly call her miss nadian making her full name erica nadian which sort of sounds like canadian. there really isn’t any word jokes you can make with erica the way you can with cody (pendant) or justin (bread, toxicated, time) or jenna (side, ration). anyway, with the phone booth strategy, i let her know that i was going to block her canadianess in so her people can’t sneak into my country and steal my job… my job well done. that’s funny on so many levels. heh. i also took note that she found me on a dating website. obviously she’s madly in lust with me so i decided to flirt with her. i told her that i loeb her, i lisa loeb her (credit by the by to my good friend melissa). erica then started reciting lyrics from lisa loeb’s “stay” and i knew i had her hooked. like a tour guide, i lead her on by letting her take control and the lead. i loaded the word “lowed” up after making sure the s’s and blanks were either used or in my possession so she couldn’t do to me what i was going to do to her. she playfully played “hah” and i imagined her doing a silly fake giggle to a genius joke i had just told that she probably didn’t get. i then licked my lips and made my move, interlocking hands with her and applying my kiss of death. zero tiles remaining, the q conspicuously yet to be played, i turned “lowed” into a seven tile usage of “narrows/slowed” and won the game. yeah erica, that just happened, i like my pancakes with blue cheese.
now time to go hit the bar! ( :
