Reportage from the white square

June 5, 2007

“Yeah, I collect old books on chess, just memorizing moves and stuff. But what helps me most are chess horoscopes.”

“Oh! Wow, I’ve never even heard of such a thing.”

“They’re pretty amazing. My buddy, he’s a Leo, and the chess horoscopes all say that Leos play best with their bishops. When I read that, that was when I knew they were on to something. Cos you know how rooks are worth more than bishops? He’ll actually sacrifice his rook if it means keeping his bishop!”

“Yeah…”

“And me, I’m a Libra. And we’re supposed to be the best players overall, very balanced and analytical.”

“What about Sagittariuses?”

“Oh, I don’t know. I’ve gotta keep studying hard. That’s why I don’t play go or any variations. I don’t wanna be distracted, you know?”

“Yep.”

    Like one of my co-workers said after this guy left the store, “I think playing chess too much makes you a little crazy.”
