Bert: Is ‘uj’ a word?
Nelly: No. Say Swisser what do you think about Paris Hilton going to jail?
Swisser: I think it’s just terrible that they’re sending her to jail. Now what am I going to do with these two Vs? Is Scrabble supposed to have two Vs?
Hannah: Ours does.
Nelly: Well she did keep on driving even after she was banned for being under the influence. How long are you going to be?
Hannah: Here Swisser let me see…you could get ‘motive’ in there. That would get rid of one of your Vs.
Swisser: Excellent. Thanks Hannah. So Paris Hilton thought she could do what she liked? Maybe she does deserve jail.
Bert: Huh! Hannah just wants you to open up the board so she can get at that triple letter word.
Nelly: So? She’ll hardly beat you now not with that lead. Anyway I can’t see Paris Hilton doing jail time. She’ll get off somehow. It’ll give her a scare though.
Swisser: Why are rich and powerful people so corrupt?
Nelly: They’re not all like that. We just don’t hear so much about the ones who act decently.
Swisser: Well I was reading in the Times last week, maybe you seen it, about this group of rich and powerful German businessmen who organised so-called business trips with private jets, fancy hotels, cocaine and prostitutes. Then they’d buy £5000 trinkets to keep their wives happy.
Nelly: Hear that Bert? You buy me £5000 trinkets and you get to go with prostitutes.
Bert: Huh! What would you do with a £5000 trinket?
Swisser: More to the point Bert – what would you do with a prostitute?
Bert: Very droll. Nice one Swisser.
Hannah: Or you could use that extra V and make ‘votive’.
Swisser: Votive? That’s not a word.
Nelly: It sure is. But too late now. You’re not having it.
