Dear Backgammon,

            It was such a pleasure to meet you the other night. With your vintage flannel and zippered case, you're stylish and so convenient to travel with.
            However, I have stumbled upon a problem that I'd like to address. You always beat me. I know that you are doing your part to play a good game, but it is getting to the point of being unfair. I'm sorry to whine and complain, but this is just getting out of hand. For instance, two nights ago when each of us had only 4 pieces left, you rolled doubles for the win and I was especially taken by surprise. It is times like that when you pretend that you are giving me a chance and then you completely strike me from behind.
            I do look forward to our next meeting, but I advise you to watch your little magnetic pieces. I've been practicing and I'm ready for you. I'm going to double-six you so badly you won't know what to do about it.Until then, you'll be in my thoughts, my dear Backgammon. I miss you.

With love,
