Yes, it's true - Scrabble is Thee place to hook up with that special someone. If you thought on-line Scrabble was just an innocent game for lexophiles and retirees, you'd be mistaken. There are men out there in Scrabble land, lots of lonely men just waiting to attract some unsuspecting female with their wizardry of triple word scores and uses for the letter Q. Trust me.
My guy started out normal enough, although he was rather chatty. Usually, any conversation between the opponents consists of short phrases like "nice move" and "I have all vowels", but my guy kept instant messaging me throughout our hour long game. I learned about his profession, his interests, and his love of Mexican food. I have to admit I was enjoying our conversation, but as we neared the end of the game, things took a definite turn from friendly to freaky.
Him: "I'm going to miss you."
Me: (Red flag! Red flag!) "Yes, it's been a good game. A close one."
Him: "I'm going to miss talking with you."
Me: (??!!) "Yes, it's been nice chatting with you too."
Him: "I'm going to REALLY miss you."
Him: "Will you miss me?"
Him: "Because I feel like we have a special connection."
Him: "And I'm really going to miss you."
And then, as I was hurriedly trying to play my last tile to finish the game before it could get any weirder, he totally and completely blew me away by sending me a link to this love song!
Sia - Day Too Soon
I have to say, the guy sure has good taste in music!
