An unexpected victory? A snapshot of an unlikely moment? This week, show us something that defies the odds.
My husband and I both love Scrabble, but we have very different styles of play: he knows all the two-letter words and the words that use “q” but not “u,” and I like to create words that amuse me, like “fart” and “elves.”
You can guess who usually wins.
That’s why this victory — a trouncing, if I may say so* — was so unexpected and satisfying, and required that I take a commemorative photo to share with all my friends on Instagram:
This week, share a photo that says “against the odds.” Maybe it’s a photo of an unlikely occurrence. Maybe it’s the photo itself that goes against the odds — a shot you never thought you’d get. Maybe it’s a photo of something you’re not sure you’ll be able to do.
Bonus points if you manage to get a photo of Phil Collins. Off you go!
* We get maybe a little too competitive at Scrabble.**
** Fine, I get too competitive at Scrabble, although not competitive enough to pass up an opportunity to spell “fart.”
