I don't like playing chess. I'd rather play sudoku or kakuro to exercise my brain. Those are “cool games” for me.
My son on the other hand likes playing chess so much. He will abandon his PSP or Nintendo when asked if he wants to play chess. Every time I move a chess piece he'll say "hmmm. what are you planning to do with that?" What he doesn't know is I really don't have anything planned at all, no chess strategies up my sleeve. I just move whatever my hand can reach first.
"Oh no! My pawn is not guarded!" Next time we play, I'll use my video recorder to capture RJ's enthusiastic and serious mood next time we play chess.
