Last night we were playing a game we have come to like with some friends. The game is Quiddler. It is not unlike scrabble but you play with cards instead of tiles and a board. It is sort of a cross between scrabble and gin. One of our friends played the word "Zen". Since Rachel and I know that this is considered a proper noun, we raised our eyebrows. Our "Zen" playing friend adamantly defended her word saying that it has come into common use at this point and is now a state of mind and no longer solely a proper noun. She and I went back and forth a bit about this and I decided to let it go since I would rather have a pleasant time than prove somebody wrong in a game.
All that being said, the following photos go out to our friend A-Rob:
Do you see a ZEN listed? I don't either.
