Open Letter to the Creators of Ruzzle - Tia
Dear Ruzzle Creators,
Where do I begin? I was recently introduced to your game and it has become the biggest time waster in my life. I don't know if I should be mad at you for creating Ruzzle or mad at the person who introduced me to the game. (At the moment, I dislike you both.)
I find myself constantly logging in on my phone and my iPad to see if anyone has challenged me. Last night I had a DREAM ABOUT RUZZLE!!! Seriously, it has taken over and it is not pretty.
I'm too competitive for my own good. I NEED to win. The problem is I CAN'T SPELL. How am I supposed to win a word finder game when I spell everything phonetically and horribly wrong? And since I refuse to cheat, I find myself on the losing end of more games than I would like. There have been many rounds that have ended with me yelling, "I HATE YOU!!!" to absolutely no one in the vicinity. It's embarrassing and it's all your fault.
And can we take a moment to talk about how "sh!t" is a word? How are swear words allowable but contractions aren't? Yes, I'm bitter about that.
I wish I had the willpower to stop playing this game. I wish I could uninstall it and pretend it never happened. But like my dad always says, "If you wish in one hand and poop in the other, which one is going to fill up fastest?" (Yeah...that's how my dad rolls.)
We all know that I will continue playing Ruzzle and my love/hate relationship with the game will continue to burn on. I will continue to scream at opponents who can't hear me when I am defeated. I will continue to look up words that I don't really believe exist at the end of each round. I will be under a Ruzzle spell for the foreseeable future.
And since my iPad just tinkled indicating someone finished a round and now it's my turn, I must end this letter and go feed my obsession.
P.S. For those who have not played Ruzzle, here's a link. And I'm not sorry for being an enabler. I dragging as many people down with me as I can.
