  • I wanted to play a game of Words With Friends really badly late one night so I thought I'd do a random challenge. The player who popped up had the username "" and his icon was a set of abs. Needless to say, I exited that game immediately and erased it from my recently played list so I wouldn't have to look at it. Who trolls for random hookups on the Scrabble boards? Do they think they're going to get some sort of crazy sexting because the girl is into word games?

    The worst part is the fact that for a split tinyyy second I considered it. At least this jackass wouldn't text me about my day and I wouldn't have to make polite small talk pretending I cared about his life in order to get the good stuff. Then I realized that was the sound of my morals flying out the window in the nerdiest way possible and got a grip. I just wanted to play Words With Friends (without benefits).
