Summertime, And The Livin's Sleazy

Ernestine grew up in a rather strict household. Being a chess champion forced her to live in a virtual prison of checkerboard patterns. Her bedroom; her school backpack; the linens on the table; the bathroom tile: all rather cleverly placed in her house to encourage young Ernestine to constantly think about chess moves.
This is the last photo of Ernestine taken before her senior prom, before she lost her virginity to the son of a Purina salesman, which subsequently ruined her life, and took away her chess dreams.
