I actually just won a game of chess. This is astonishing. I am usually hideously awful at chess. Perhaps my magical chess cognitive abilities have at last matured. During the course of the game, I did not, in fact, miss hilariously obvious things nor did I needlessly sacrifice many pieces nor did I succumb to one battle plan option when another better one lurked just around the corner.
I am ridiculously pleased.
This is immensely gratifying for I often am plagued by, "Ha! You're so smart but I can beat you at chess! I'm smarter than you!" Which is then followed by me entertaining mental images of their smashed skulls. So hee.
