More Domesticity: Chess

This is last week. I'm sitting across from my husband, both of us cross-legged on the sofa with a chess board between us. We're down to a pitifully small number of relatively impotent players. Both Queens are gone.

The hubby moans, "I want my queen back". Wife starts to chuckle as she moves her pieces in closer.

"Offer me anything I ask for." Hubby starts to chuckle too
"Anything you want."
"I want my queen back!"

Quoting Princess Bride in a chess game. Worst mockery of chess ever.
Also, we are probably close to the worst players ever.
