The Perfect Storm, Scrabble Style

Over the weekend that Adria and I spent in Portland before heading up to Alaska, we played quite a bit of Scrabble.

If you look at the bottom left of this Scrabble board, you will see the word "Detainee". This word now represents the highest scoring play that I have ever had in Scrabble, it also is the only time that I have played all 7 of the tiles in my hand in a single play. But what makes this play a perfect storm is that it also uses 2 triple word score squares. All told this play was good for 140 points. It may not be as good of a word as "Rematerialized", but it will live on in my memory for quite some time.
