Scrabble with hot chocolate tonight. Look over on the left there. Near the end of the game, the young miss tacked “OPINION” on the end of QUILT for a personal-best 72-points on one play. Her total for the game: 353. Way, way better than her previous record of 262.
Dad hung on with 405 for the victory. The difference was my seven-letter play earlier in the game: SLICKER. Take away that 50-point bonus and it would have been a close shave for me.
