there's no yawning in bingo

At least that's what my aunt was telling theMonica after a yawn. Their might not be yawning in bingo, but I'll tell you what there is . . . losing. Lots and lots of losing.

Granted I'm accustomed to losing money, having just done that in Vegas about a month ago. But at least Vegas give you the sweet, sweet taste of a small win in blackjack every once in a while. Bingo is cold. Bingo gives you nothing.

The three of us have been to bingo twice now. None of us have won even a single game. I think I was within one number of winning once (in about 15 games). Most double bingo games I didn't even have a single bingo.

All of this is sad. But the saddest thing of all is that when someone won, there call of "Bingo," was frail and unemotional. Ok, a hundred bucks isn't a life-changing amount of money, but it's better than losing EVERY SINGLE TIME.

I guess the sweet spot for bingo is that first game you win. Bingo, I await your sweetness.

Bingo is a cruel mistress, Roger. She give you a ray of hope, and then she'll break your heart every time

The first game of Bingo you win is the greatest - it's a lot like the first time you shoot heroin. You spend your entire life trying to replicate it's splendor.

Or so I hear. I've never played Bingo.
