All Apologies

This afternoon Rahul and I had one of our rare games of chess. In the first half I was reckless and sacrificing and lost most of my pieces before we were ten minutes in. I spent a lot of my time scowling. My mood was not made better by his forgetting to call out little things like "Check".

While he was busily knocking down my queen and checking my king I snarled a reminder yet again, "And what are you supposed to say!"

Startled, not only did he forget all about check, he made big eyes at me and mumbled, "Uh, sorry?"

Talk about rubbing salt in my wounds.
