Fainjin proposed a fun game to The Dad after dinner. “Dad! I will say a letter, and you say a word starting with that letter. OK?”
“OK,” his father agreed.
“No, that wasn’t the answer.”
“But fish starts with F…”
“But it wasn’t the answer I was thinking of. Try again.”
Oh dear, poor Dad. It was going to be hard to win that one. But at least he had triumphed earlier in the day, emerging from a game with Pearl to proclaim, “Yes!!! I can beat a nine-year-old who has never played chess before!”
Let’s see who wins the second game, though.
