A Sunday afternoon. Good weather. Mrs. Hershberger wants to get outdoors and enjoy it with her husband. Go for a walk. Eat a picnic lunch in the park. Take a drive to see the bright colors and beautiful scenery. Maybe stop for smoking a waterpipe together on the way home.
Mr. Hershberger got a different idea. Mr. Waldrop is playing Mr. Boehm in the Best-of-Five showdown of the annual Brooklyn Chess Championship. The bright sunny weather? Not a problem, he’ll just close the drapes to cut off any glare on the chessboard. Food? There’s time for a quick pizza between two games.
Mrs. Hershberger still feels like wanting to do something with her husband. So she just lies down until the feeling goes away.
