The Art of War.

I will soon conquer my pops on the chess board.
Every move he makes, he stops the game and tells me a lesson about how that move relates to life. The moves I was making, he pointed out were mistakes that you can easily make. He then tells me to Undo that move and choose another. Something I can never do in real life.

I was sooooo close to winning! I had his queen cornered with 3 valuable pieces. He advanced his pawns. I kept getting closer to his Queen. I thought I had her, which would lead to me winning the game. His pawn advanced and eventually became a Queen, putting my King in Checkmate. I thought I had the Queen but I lost sight of my other valuable pieces. If you know me well, you would understand the IRONY in this.
