Today is a red letter day, a day that will go down in the history books, a day that I will look back at with fond esteem. It is the day I beat James at chess!
Don’t get me wrong, I have beaten him in chess before, but it wasn’t the same. Before, when I would win, I captured all his guys and I just had to pin down his king—which I ALWAYS need help with. Tonight was monumental because not only did I put him in checkmate but I completely caught him of guard. I said “checkmate” and his response was “no, wait, it’s not checkmate; I can get out of it.” And yet he couldn’t! James is now saying that he will not play chess with me ever again—I doubt that. Anyway, for 6 years I have been losing at chess and still playing. I guess it’s because “I is now a college student.”
