Last weekend Brigitte and Thomas had their engagement party. It was a lot of fun. The food was great and we learned how to Greek dance! [since Thomas and his family are Greek]
But by far the highlight of the party was the game of Checkers.
Now, I'm no checkers whiz. I don't think I've ever won a game of checkers in my life. My brain just doesn't function in that way. However, the sun was smiling on me that day and I prevailed as Checkers Champ!
My first opponent was Anne Marie...and I'll admit it, she went easy on me...but that's not my fault! She chose her own moves. Alex stepped up next and I shut him down. Finally, David, the final authority on checkers, decided he was going to take me on. I was nervous, it's true, but in the end we had to call a tie. Which means I didn't lose! And so...I retire as champion. Never again will I play another game of checkers so that I may retain my title forevermore.
