Aspiring rapper, Palm Beach County retiree become buds through 'Words with Friends'

The two had been playing the online game Words with Friends together for over a year.

Spencer Sleyon is a young rapper who goes by the name Half Empty, and his new best friend is an 81-year-old woman in Florida named Roz. A man named Spencer, who is from Harlem and in his 20s, met a woman named Roz who is in her 80s and lives in Florida.

The Washington Post reported that the friendship really took off when Guttman used the word p-h-a-t, hip-hop slang for excellent.

Still, while they may be all smiles in person, it sounds as though their games are fairly intense, with Spencer showing no signs of going easy on his pal despite being more than six decades her junior. The pastor arranged for a meeting in West Palm Beach on Friday.

As of Monday, the tweet has more than 1 million likes, 240,000 retweets and 5,000 comments. Spencer tweeted they have played more than 300 games together.

The meeting became possible thanks to Amy Butler, a pastor at the Riverside Church in Manhattan.

Words With Friends also called the story "amazing" on Twitter. Sleyon said he aked her. Their first meet and greet was as sweet as you can imagine.
