A local park and rec here recently had a family bingo night. We decided to go. It was $1 for a card, and you got to keep the card for the whole night. Talk about a great deal! We played 20 games.
Luck wasn't with us on this night, but we had a great time. There were interesting prizes - air mattresses and fish aquariums and chia pets and fishing poles. Every seat was taken. We saw next to three elderly women who were very friendly, and one of them shared her boxes of raisins with the boys.
And when a construction worker at the table with Cort won a round, he let Cort go up and get his prize. The prizes were wrapped in newspaper, so you didn't know what it was until you unwrapped it. Cort was proud of his four pack of flashlights.
Supposedly, family bingo happens twice a year. We'll be on the lookout for the next event.
Readers, when is the last time you played Bingo?
