Chess Club & The Interesting King
Lucy considers the chess club
On the way home from school, Lucy mentioned to me that there's a chess club.
"Do you want to be in it?" I said.
"YEAH!" she said.
"Chess is a winning game," I said. Lucy hates winning games.
"NO!" she said. "I HATE WINNING GAMES!"
"Well," I said, "Daddy could always teach you."
"I KNOW HOW TO PLAY CHESS ALREADY, MAMA," she said. "YOU JUST MOVE THE DONKEY!"

Alice starts a story
When I picked up Alice at preschool, she started a story I wish she'd finish.
"I'm angry at the interesting king who lives on Sugar Mountain..."
Stay tuned; I'll see if I can keep her going on this one.
