  1. I only got 10 today, Maxine! I missed ‘rats’ because I assumed it would be disallowed, and there were three others I might have gotten, but the remainder of the words were new to me. I’m ashamed of myself, because I don’t think I’ll bother to look them up (I usually look up *every* unfamiliar word). These seem quite obscure to me though and I know I’ll never use them.
    I meant to tell you, I can do Sodukus! I decided that they couldn’t be all that hard because everyone seems to do them. Sure enough, I find the ‘easy’ and ‘intermediate’ levels a snap now. They’re actually quite fun!
