One big long draw

I really don’t want to lose to this guy. But I will unless he totally screws up. We started playing a game of chess against each other back on October 5th when the weather still seemed as if it could have been summer. I remember sitting there, alone, and making that one move that was not half bad, but was the wrong move. That move sent a chill through me as soon as I made it. I should have taken a little longer thinking about it.

We remember the slightly bad moves most, the ones we do not make exactly right, but should have. That’s alright. Things even out. After all, we are winning in some other games where our opponent did not make exactly the right move either.

Wouldn’t it be great if our time on this earth was infinite. We could search for the exactly right move until we found it. But our opponents would search for theirs too. Life would be one big long draw.
