Number 6 and 7 have recently discovered Scrabble.
Not the Scrabble Junior version. The actual grown up version. And they love it.
They were playing with my husband in the dining room. He was on a team with Number 7 (who is 6 years old) and the two of them were playing against Number 6, who is seven years old.
I was in the kitchen cleaning up, and I heard Number 6 ask,
“Is toke a word?”
“Actually, yes, it is,” my husband told him.
My husband and Number 7 took their turn, and then it was Number 6’s turn again.
How about keg? Is keg a word?”
“Ummm, yes. Keg is also a word,” I heard my husband tell him.
I don’t think he has any idea what either of those things mean.
But one thing I know is that if I ever need a Scrabble partner, I’m gonna go with Number 6.
