As a child, I played a lot of games. Board games were my favorite. Especially Monopoly. I could sit for hours and buy and sell and build homes and hotels, etc. Being the youngest of five, there were times, especially as we all got older, that I was left alone because my siblings were at school or work or wherever they had to be. My mom introduced me to all kinds of word games and puzzles. Do you remember Wordles? That’s what we called them . . . you would choose a word and see how many other words you could find within the original word you chose. For example, if the original word you chose was “House”, you could come up with he, she, shoe, etc.
Today I choose the word listen. I “wordled” from that . . . .SILENT.
Hmmmm . . . . .
