Hello everybody! I have not had a chance to play bingo too much lately with a work schedule that's been crazy but I got my bingo fix the other day and of all places the hospital :/(
My mom was in the hospital recovering from gall bladder surgery and thumbing thru the hospitality booklet they had bingo night for the patients.
There was 4 bingo cards in the booklet and we had to tune in to the hospital tv at 7 PM and play. The bingo caller was a young gal who was a goof ball LOL.
She had the old fashioned cage she turned the balls in and kept dropping them out of the cage onto to floor and then would pick them up and drop them again LOL. When ever she felt like it she would pick up a number off the floor and would call it as the next number.
The funniest part was when she called the "O" she made a mistake and said "zero 72" LOL. When a patient won they had to dial the extension to her phone and she would verify the bingo. To congratulate the winner she had a noise maker that you would see at a kids birthday party twirling the thing up in the air.
She was a riot and was so unprofessionally played that we had a good chuckle. If I didn't know better I would think she was sipping brandy and was half in the bag LOL
This kind of unconventional bingo in a diehard bingo crowd wouldn't fly but it all somehow added to the fun.
