Holiday Pastime

We decorated the Christmas tree last night.
It is magical looking.
My favorite thing is popping popcorn, getting a diet coke (or glass of wine, depending . . .), turning off all the lights except for the tree's, grabbing the chess board and having an intense game with hubby.
We wrap ourselves in sweatshirts or blankets because we never turn on the heat and we leave the windows open.
We smack talk each other for hours while sitting in front of our magical Christmas tree.
Our shortest game was like an hour and half. And I'm pretty sure he cheated that time.
This was our favorite holiday pastime until last year.
Then we got a roommate and demanding jobs.
It is a rare occasion to do that now days. He is always busy with work and I am always tired or don't feel like being awake till two in the morning.
Oh to be young and in school again.

OK, don't think I'm stupid, but I've never played chess before. No, I lie - I tried to play one time at a coffee shop, but I didn't really understand it. Maybe you could teach me someday???
