online dialogue and the game of it
jim’s friend: hey bro
jim: hi and thanks for accepting my challenge
jim’s friend: I love to play
jim’s friend: how r u today?
jim: fine thank you, how are you?
jim’s friend: lost 5 or 6 in a row!
jim: sorry to hear
jim: you've still been on a higher level than I've ever
jim’s friend: your rating is 200 points higher than mine
jim: I've cared too much of my games, a lot of other things have been left undone in my life right now
jim’s friend: I stay up all night playing chess.. that's when I make most of my bad moves...then the next day I feel like crap from staying up all night.
jim: well I'm no one to tell, I just woke up at 1 am, shall have a long day today
jim’s friend: yup
jim: I have a friend in Bucharest working for a government, she wrote me she hopes I have enough time for myself, I was going to write her I am having too much time for me (and my chess)
jim’s friend: good luck
jim: thanks that'll be needed, I am going to see her in September
jim’s friend: good for you.. mines on her way home from work!
jim: glad to hear, see you've done it better than me so far
jim: you can lose in chess and win in life or vice versa
jim’s friend: so true
jim’s friend: is it too much to ask for both victories? LOL
jim: another thing, as I said I'm no one to tell, but I had a thought: tell her you are a winner in life because you got her, that's what really counts
jim’s friend: I'm on 2 hours sleep.. can't think good enough for chess.. 9 losses in a row is my limit! :)
jim’s friend: see you tomorrow if you want to play another one.
jim: thanks, I enjoyed more the talking than the game, all the best
jim: bye now and thanks again
