SETTING: Super Bowl, half time show, our living room. Couches, chairs, 150,000 kinds of fattening dips, chips, wings, things, spent bottles strewn about.

I played a game of chess with L the other day and… I won! Checkmate! Woooooo hooooooo! He looked incredulous (appropriate, as I can’t beat him).

Gotta laugh. Especially at myself. (L did not lose graciously or gracefully.)
