Fetish

I spend most of every Sunday with crossword puzzles. Our local paper has three of them, with different levels of difficulty. After solving the Jumble and Sudoku, which I consider a warm-ups for my brain, I tackle the mid-level crossword, because it’s the shortest, then move on to the difficult one. By day’s end, I’ve completed all of them…and by Monday morning I’m looking for more word games.

Scrabble satisfies one craving, Words with Friends another. But I’m always left with the need to dig into a puzzle, one that will keep me going for a while. Puzzle books fulfill some of those needs, and reading literature more. But, but, but…

What happens when I’ve done the last, read the last word? Oh, there will be more puzzles to come, more books read, but in the meantime, to plug the gaps, there are apps.

I’ve been through many of them, with differing degrees of satisfaction, abandoning them when they cease being entertaining; but last week I tried a new one, and spent several hours over five days with it.

Then I deleted it.

Why? It told me the word fetish is not in the dictionary.

Not something you say to a word addict. EVER.
