I remember reading a story on Ehell that involved raccoons playing scrabble. I actually thought to myself, "I wonder if they mean the actual game or a certain nocturnal activity?"

Gave myself a brain hurt.

I almost choked during a recent conversation with my aunt. Granny has started visiting the local Senior Center for Scrabble Saturdays. But Granny was upset because she keeps getting paired up with a lady who stinks at Scrabble, and Granny used to be a competitive Scrabble player.
In the United States today, there is a pervasive tendency to treat children as adults, and adults as children.  The options of children are thus steadily expanded, while those of adults are progressively constricted.  The result is unruly children and childish adults.  ~Thomas Szasz
