As I've stated before a person once said, "Show me a person who doesn't mind losing and I'll show you a loser."
I don't know about you, but blowing a game can mess up my whole day!
I mean, it's one thing to be outplayed, but it's an entirely different thing when you do something stupid and lose the game. Maybe it shouldn't be like that... maybe I should just be able to accept that I'm stupid and move on.
But I can't. I want to win. And for those fools who think it's just a game
, NO! It isn't just a game
, is it?
I was entertaining the idea of writing a sci-fi story about an alien race invading the earth and the leaders of their race and ours decide to settle the conquest by matching their top player against ours in a game of chess.
Okay, okay, I'm just kidding. That's a dumb idea for a story... or is it?
Maybe I've become obsessed with chess like the rest of you!
Maybe I need a girlfriend. *sigh*
