>The Heat Is On: Scrabble Tourney Journey

>Dad and I saw a dolphin jumping in the ocean today. We also spotted a yellow crab peeking out of its hole and a beautiful blue heron. (Check out dad’s cool clip-on shades. This guy’s got style.) Later, Dad got really excited when he witnessed a lizard catching and then consuming a moth. Ah, nature.
It’s so hot here that my legs were covered in little beads of sweat like condensation on a glass. I swam in the ocean, which was calm and warm.
Mom and I took on the mall and went to Nordstrom (YEA! I miss you, Nordstrom!) for some serious bra shopping. We had a no-nonsense woman named Robin measure us and we were both lovingly schooled about not knowing our correct sizes. As far as I can tell, sizing is a science. I ended up choosing two bras in a different size than the one Robin suggested, and I ran away from the counter while mom was paying for our things because I was afraid Robin might strangle me with her pink measuring tape. But she should be happy for me, because these bras feel better than any that I’ve ever had.
Who will religiously comment on my blog while Aimee’s trekking through the monsoons of Mexico? I promise to try to stay out of trouble while you’re gone. Come back in one piece please.
I know you all care a lot about our family Scrabble games. Here’s the latest: Mom kicked things off with a 78 point word, “beeping” (50 points for using all her letters and 28 for the actual letter values) and I spent the rest of the game unsuccessfully trying to catch up. Mom won with 282 points and I trailed far behind with 211. Oy vey.
