DD6 proposed a bargain to DS4: If he would put on a show with her, she would play Letterpress (a Scrabble-like word game) with him. DS looked a little startled (they haven't played against each other before), then delighted, then a little confused. The difficulty is that DD is not yet reading or writing much, while DS is a crack player who can regularly beat adults. Finally he said, "OK, (DD), I'll play short words that you can read. And I won't try to get territory." I was a little concerned that DD would see this as condescending, coming from her little brother, but she responded happily, "Thanks, (DS), that's so nice of you!" He said it so kindly and thoughtfully, and she took it in just the spirit it was intended.
