"@#% piece! Fit, you worthless piece of filth! Look at this piece--how can it NOT go there?? arrghhh!!"
"I can't find that--where the CRAP--arrghhh!!"
"Jen, can you help me find--" "NO! I'm working on this STUPID CORNER UNTIL I DIE."
I'm also a super nerdy puzzler who tells puzzle stories about her puzzle adventures.
Jen: "oh man, Sean. Check out this piece here. Look how it fits!! Isn't that crazy??"
Sean: silence. (never looked in the first place) (actually Sean remains silent through pretty much all my tirades/commentary.)
Jen: "Oh MAN! Listen to this! So i looked at this gap and was like, where could that piece be? i need to find a wonky shape like thisss... and I immediately randomly looked to the left and my eyes fell on the very piece i need! I didn't even look around! Can you believe it??"
Jen: "I'm learning so much! Puzzles ARE fun!"
We have been working on a world map puzzle that has the countries of the world printed on the water part. It has the name, capital, population, and area. This helps you not go all the way to actually blowing your brains out when you're working on the ocean.
Jen: "Something I like to do is take a piece that has part of a country's name and try to figure out what country it is. Like this one: ragua. RagOOa. bragua. Frrr..agua. NICARAGUA!"
And that's why everyone should participate in activities with me.
