Well, other people go to a bingo hall, and sit and talk and have fun, and go home with this:
Yeah, that's MY money!!!
I actually won one of the bigger jackpots. It was/is like a dream...I had a bingo worker come over and count out $1199.00 in front of me. It takes quite a fair amount of time and it's the most wonderful time ever.
We have a bingo rule where if we win over $100, we give 10% to the table, so that the friends who are with you who might not win can still feel genuinely happy because if one of us wins-we all win. So, from my $1199, I gave up $120 to the table and since my son was with me, I gave him $100. Friend Nancy rejected her share of the 10% and so we all split it. I won another small bingo later and won another $29.00, which is chump change when you have over $900 in your purse, but still really fun! Nancy won (for the first time ever) $50.00, her son won $75.00, and my son Andrew won $37.00.
And THAT is a good night at bingo, folks!
Did I mention that I just bought a vacation package to Puerto Vallarta for $1280.00? I have just won enough money to almost completely pay off the trip!!
Andrew is convinced that he is a good luck charm and we should go back soon. We'll see....I feel like I have been really lucky this year and at some point, my luck will run out.
