Watch out, chess players.

A little before Christmas, my brother Cassian was in town with his family. I hung out with him and my nephew Nathaniel and my niece Carolyn for a while here at Kingman and then we went to the Lawrence Hall of Science.

Nathaniel was just back from a national chess tournament in Orlando. He's seven years old. He wanted to play a game of chess, so we did.

I'm not much of a chess player, but i'm not exactly terrible either. He kicked my butt... and in that kinda embarrassing way where your opponent looks like he's not really paying that much attention while you think really hard for a few minutes, and then after you make your move, five or ten seconds of pondering is enough for your opponent to respond.
