What do these two things have in common, one might ask?
Well I have an answer.
Kids play tennis. Moms play Bananagrams during said tennis lessons.
We can usually play two games during their lesson. Unless one of us starts talking (or chit-chatting as Thomas calls it) and stops really thinking and planning her words . . .
And one tip--always bring a neat sheet or blanket to put on the table. I lost a letter when I didn't cover the table at their earlier tennis lessons at Fairview. Lesson learned. Plus it just makes the surface smoother for sliding your letters around, very important for your endgame moves! :) [I am happy to report that the Bananagrams people sent me a free replacement letter.]
Oh, and you can spell "tennis" when you play Bananagrams . . .
