When K broke out the new checker board, The Mayor said that he'd prefer to learn chess first.
With difficulty, K and I somehow remembered the names of the chess pieces, but the rules of the game were long lost.
K, being a stalwart and patient parent, turned to the Internet and printed out a set of game instructions.
My glorious husband sat down at The Mayor's little table and began explaining.
"This game has a LOT of rules, Mayor," he said.
"Dad," The Mayor replied. "I really like games and game rules. Actually, I like all rules."
He thought for a moment, then added,
"Except parent's rules. Those are stinky."
