I saw some tweets about Draw Something, and I immediately knew it was an app I must ignore if I wanted to have a life.
Five minutes after making that decision, I downloaded it and emailed my sister so I had someone to play against who would be as swayed by make up words like app and drawsome.
(By the way, drawsome is the best word in the non-language dictionary and shouting it at me every time I get something right on Draw Something is EXACTLY HOW YOU KEEP ME COMING BACK.)
I woke up the next morning to:
@L8enough better not have gone to bed! We have some drawing to do.

Now you understand why I emailed her in the first place.
The game is basically pictionary with your finger.
You pick a word, draw it on the screen and send your picture to the other person who has to guess it. You both get coins based on the difficulty of the word. And my favorite part is, when they send you a word, you first get to watch them guess your word. I ALWAYS watch the guessing for 3 drawsome reasons.
- To test my drawing abilities
- To test the other person’s ability to be on the Alex wavelength
- Most importantly, to test that my drawing awesomeness is not wasted on someone who gives up halfway through watching my detailed art work.
I didn’t even know who this guys WAS last year and now I’m drawing him WITH MY INDEX FINGER.
And finally my rendition of the apocalypse.
I even got my husband to play. He’s an amazing artist who completely sucks at Words With Friends so I thought HERE OUR APP CHANCE.
The first few pictures didn’t go so well and tf he wasn’t my husband, I would’ve written him off as a #2. Then I got this drawing.
Follow by Scott realizing I drew a squirrel, after talking himself through not having the letters for Yoshi in a tree, which is EXACTLY what I knew he’s think so I drew a second squirrel on the ground throwing nuts into a tree hole.
Besides bringing my husband and I closer together, Draw Something helps you to get to know who really gets you. Like my sister and I are on a 71 game winning streak.
So I plan on weeding out all potential friends with a week’s worth of Draw Something. And maybe some old friends, too. I don’t have time for friendship anyway. I’m busy being drawsome.
