81. The day I learned to play checkers, or rather, "can I? no.".
Somehow during childhood I escaped without ever playing checkers. Seriously. I don't know how! I love games. On Monday my sweet friend Rebecca came by Wesley, and while we were chatting she noticed a game box behind me that included checkers. Cue checkers lesson and game-time, and a most fun work break.
Using her terminology, we are both very "defensive" players. I understand that as me running my checkers away from her checkers while we played. The games were also a bit long because of said behavior. The games were also punctuated by me frequently asking "can I do such-and-such" and prompt replies of "no."
And I really like checkers now.
