Nerds Having Fun

When I was at Blue Mountain, we nerdy writers would spend our evening hours playing games like Scrabble and Dictionary. I was in HEAVEN. I love those word games. Today at my Rice Papers gathering (Asian American women writers) we pulled out a game of Balderdash (a version of Dictionary) and just laughed our faces off. It was really too fun for words.

I'm now toying with the idea of holding a monthly (?) Game Night for Nerds. Scrabble, Dictionary, Boggle, and other wordy diversions.

Quick? What do you think the word SWOW means?

Post your guesses. Best one gets a prize from me. Real answer comes in a day or two.

SWOW--a magnificent female pig. Much easier to say than "Wow, what a sow!" :)

That's funny gayle. Yesterday another definition was that it was a contraction for "So, wow, women!"

Christine: no comment! :-)

Okay, I think Gayle has won, because Christine and Melanie were THERE, and they know the real definition!

SWOW: "to make a loud noise"

So go out there and swow your heads off!

Gayle gets a prize. Watch your snail mail!

Woo hoo! What fun! I'm Swowing like crazy (and my nether regions are smarting from the memory of childbirth for some reason...)

Thanks, Susan!
