I try to avoid playing games on Facebook or on my iPad because it is so easy to get hooked and use up a lot of time. But I have to admit, I do enjoy “Words With Friends.” It is similar to Scrabble, with the objective being to score the most points by creating words with the supposedly random tiles the app generates.

But as you can see below, this was my selection in a recent game.

My randomly generated letters!

Now, I have nothing agains the letter “E,” but really wasn’t this a bit much? I mean, it is bad enough that six out of my seven letters were one point letters. But did five of them have to be E? What word could I possibly create with this combination of letters?

I do not remember if I won that game (probably not), but I used those letters as best I could. Sometimes in life we just have to work with what we have.
