I (we) WON!!!!

Nov 16, 2011
I have the worst luck when it comes to winning.  Especially when it is really luck that you need, with no talent involved. Oh and BINGO is the worst of the worst.

So the worstest....est.

How can one be bad at Bingo? I have no idea!  My grandparents had bought one of those little Bingo games where you can spin the balls round and round in the little cage.  Some of my family members played it one Christmas Eve for an hour at least.  Everyone won 3 or 4 times. EXCEPT ME!  Seriously! It didn't matter if I had one board or four.  I couldn't win.

In fact another Bingo experience was at a chicken festival in southern Ohio.  They had....a Bingo tent! You played for a quarter and you used little corn kernels for markers, it was so cute and small town like.  I went in, hoping Bingo and I could be friends.  Nope not a chance.  Lost, lost, lost, lost, intervention, lost, gave up, well one more, lost, really gave up and went to find some chicken to eat. My sister laughs at my experiences with Bingo and who can blame her.

A couple weeks ago I went shopping with my sister and brother-in-law to look for some boots.  We are looking around Shoe Carnival when the dude calls over the announcements that the person who finds the staff member Melanie and brings her name tag to the front gets to spin the prize wheel. 

The PRIZE WHEEL!!! Oh snap! 

I had always wanted to spin that thing. But why try to find her, I have the worst luck.  That's when I hear my sister say "That was easy." Huh? A staff member had just walked around the corner and my wonderful, brilliant sister asked her her name and it was Melanie!  We won! We won! I ran and skipped to the front so excited to win a prize.  The dude wasn't quite sure how to react to my enthusiasm. I spun the wheel and got $5 off!  Yeah!!! 

Ok, ok my sister won. But she wasn't buying shoes, so I'll claim that win for me. 

Moral of the story: A long as you take a lucky person with you, you can win prizes even though you don't have enough luck to win at Bingo.
