A Fun Dream

I had one of my classic vivid dreams last night. It was fairly realistic, but, as usual, there were some fantastic elements. I’m not sure exactly where it started, but my sister and I were touring New York City( which

Smarm!

And with the final play of “smarm”, which Emery unwisely challenged, I am Scrabble Champion again. About time I broke his streak. He was almost catching up to me in the stats. Here’s a plot of our average game, as
