Foolish Consistency

My own hobgoblins have hijacked my very little mind.  My decision to register Joey for chess was perhaps not the most well-thought out plan.

But it seemed like a really good idea at the time.

Click here for the Chicago Parent Magazine story.  And if you want to leave a comment on that site about how I altered the very course of your life, it really wouldn't hurt my feelings.


  1. I am headed over there now, but already can't imagine having to be a lowly opponent to anyone's budding chess game!

  2. GREAT ESSAY!!!!!!!!!!!! I totally laughed. (And let Joey know that our house, you are allowed to "scooch" the chess pieces if you so desire.)


  3. Are any of your plans well thought out?

  4. Andrea - you and me both.

    MOV - I knew scooching would be ok with you.

    Anonymous Atheist Friend - You already know the answer to that one.
