Then it feels as if I didn´t actually write it, I just took dictation. It is an amazing feeling.(less)

Excellent story about losing gracefully. Learning to say, "Good game, and congratulations" when you have lost to your competitor is hard but an important skill to have, and kids will learn just how to do it from this wonderful story.

A wonderful perk
