The game of chess is ages old, and is loosely based on the days of castles and medevil warfare, only in a civilized table-top mind-challenge way. The writer explained that her favorite chess piece was the rook (i.e. the knight), because as far as she is concerned, knights are sexy and are her ideal mate. I know this because she mentions drooling over how manly knights are.
But aside from knights, I might find one attractive if there were ever a female knight. The post made me think of another prompt that is loosely related; describe your ideal living situation.
My favorite chess piece is the king. Not only is the king in charge, but the king traditionally lives in a castle and historically, is married to the queen. Everything the king does, he does royally, or in a royal fashion. A king wears a gold crown, sits on a golden throne, and wears a fur coat. Just like me, a king goes overboard whenever he sets out to do even the most mundane of things.
My ideal living situation would ultimately be a castle because I’ve always been fascinated by the medieval times. I would love to build my own castle, but since they are built with stone and concrete, castles are expensive things to build.
How could I live in a castle? Let’s take a look at the possibilities…
I’ve also always wanted my very own freight train diesel locomotive, but trains are big things. Extremely expensive things, mind you. I’ve heard that some locomotives can cost in upwards of $200 million!
Lots of folks tell me that I have expensive tastes. Truth be told, I don’t. I have impossible tastes. Besides, where would I put a train? In my yard? Hardly. Trains are big things. Historically speaking, when we are told stories of a train robbery, it’s always the contents of the train that are stolen, not the train itself.
