I've always been kinda obsessed with words -- finding the right word, using unusual words, even making up words. This began when I was a very little girl. My dad loves to tell the story of how he would stand just out of my line of sight to listen to me playing. I would speak as if I was reading aloud a script, saying things like " 'Oh, no!' she exclaimed" as my dolls had crazy adventures. (My boss Jeremy claims I still do this. He calls it narrating my life.) Anyway, words are a thing with me. And I love any and all games where words are important, like Scrabble and Boggle. But I completely love, love, LOVE Mad Libs!
