Failure of the Day: Sportmanship

That's stretching it a bit, I know; not even Dale Carnegie himself would insist that you have let your guest always win at board games. And isn't it just a little insulting to function as though courtesy were tantamount to forgetting all your skills? After all, I do know that "sizery" isn't a word, and it especially isn't a word on a triple word score square. Plus I only won by 4 points. Still, I couldn't help but feel a twinge of worry that I was being a wee bit rude. In my defense, I didn't shove my ass in Jeff's face and sing "I am the WEEEEE-NER!" as I usually do with Chris.

Lovely day overall.
