I spend my mornings at the middle school and today stayed later than usual to go to chess club with Alexandra. Once upon a time I knew how to play chess, but that was something like 25 years ago and I absolutely didn't remember. So she gave me the basic rundown of rules and we began playing.
She won in less than a minute.
Then she put her hands over her mouth to muffle the laughing.
I admit, it was rather pathetic...and definitely laughable!
Come the second game I managed to hang in there slightly longer, but it was still a lost cause.
I think I'll spend the afternoon reading up on the strategies of chess.
