I don't play much Scrabble because Charlotte is way better at it than I am and it's not the most fun to play something repeatedly and lose. Today I played my highest-scoring move, with "favours" on the end of "walking" for 94 points.

Of course I was playing against Tabitha at the time, so instead of a smug celebration, I just made my baby sad.
