Triple word score THIS! (lewd gesture follows)

This is painful to talk about so I'll keep it short (but not sweet). This Thanksgiving I was served a heaping helping of my ass, severely whupped, with a side of shame. One of my cousins brought the beloved classic board game Scrabble with her and me, my sister, and my brother-by-another-mother, Joe (alright, he's my cousin-in-law, but how often do you get to use that kind of blaxploitation-speak in life, seriously?) sat down to have some fun with words. I'll admit that I came to the Scrabble table with a fair amount of confidence. Actually, to be honest, I came with a ginormous amount of unseemly arrogance. You see, while the rest of you were out making friends and having your first experiences with the opposite sex I was at home, skimming the dictionary, picking out interesting words to use in conversation so I could impress my peers(unbeknownst to me at the time, most young people are more impressed by a shiny car than excess verbiage, go figure). Needless to say, I should have dominated my unsuspecting competition. What actually happened was that I was beaten like the reddest-headed of step-children. I mean, what the Shit?!!! I can accept being beaten by my relatives because the same genius probably runs through all our veins (see aforementioned unseemly arrogance). But Joe doesn't share any of the brilliant Miraldo/Santos DNA. The only thing I can do is nurse my wounded pride and suggest we play Pictionary next year. Though, I seem to recall some pretty heated games of Pictionary in years past. In fact, I can remember another of my cousins verbally thrashing his teammate/very pregnant wife. Before you judge him, let me say that the harsh, unforgiving world of Milton-Bradley and Parker Brothers doesn't allow you to cut someone some slack just because they're a cherished loved one or in their third trimester. It's kill or be killed, dammit! Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to sign up for Highly Realistic Doodles 101 next semester in preparation for next November's Darwinian battle of wits. Fear my sketchpad!
