Scrabble Epiphany

Fifi put down the letters "amino" to form the word "dimethylaminoethanol," encompassing three Triple Word Scores. Zynych cursed and overturned the board.

Fifi clucked her tongue. "You will never achieve gnosis this way. We must try again. Pick up the tiles."

Then something clicked in his brain.

He picked up the tiles and put them back in the bag. "Let's try this again," he said. "I feel lucky." There was a glint in his eye.
