I have this admittedly unusual fixation whereby sometimes when I see/hear words my first reaction is, “Whoa, great Scrabble letters”. It can be highly distracting in social circumstances when you should be thinking of what to say after “Hello”, as opposed to where to play the letters in your conversational counterpart’s name on an imaginary Scrabble board such that you can put an “H” on a triple letter score.
To that point, tonight I was emailing with someone and the subject was “Deepak” (as in Chopra) and “Oman” (don’t ask). “Good Scrabble words”, was my straight outta Tourette’s response. And the answer? ADENOMA.
Just ’cause I knew you wanted to know.
