The Hex Is On


Deirdre is a big fan of board games, and Carrick and Duncan promised to play one before they left. Duncan chose Scrabble. Here, he must be putting to hex on me. He later blindsided me and overcame my substantial lead with brilliant maneuver — holding back a "Y" on a high-value, triple-score word he made toward the end of the game, then attaching the "Y" to the word the next round to win the game. He claimed he didn't realize what he was doing, but I don't buy it for a second. Secondary.
