Mark and I played Scrabble on Sunday and he scored a 140-point triple-triple, COtTAGER, through my T when I dumped clunky vowels in TABOO. I managed to still win, 468-450. What made the game so noteworthy was Mark’s final rack: BGHMSUU–HUMBUGS. He had it naturally. HUMBUGS ranks 25042 out of all 25318 seven-letter words. Imagine if he had been able to play this rarity!
