Amateur Conspiracy

The Tree Climbing Family is learning how to play chess.  PB and I figured the only way we would master the game would be to learn at a child's level.  Including the kids is really just a cover for our ineptness.  The fact that the kids are quickly catching on and loving it is merely a bonus.

Last night after dinner we all sat down for a girls vs boys competition.  PB and Doc Brown started whispering strategy in each other's ear which caught Obi Wan-da's attention.  When she asked them to speak up we explained the concept of the team huddle.  Not to be outdone here's what she whispered in my ear (loudly I should add):

"Why did the chicken cross the playground?  To get to the other slide."

By the way, the girls won.

With strategy like that, how could they not? [smile]
