It's Bingo Night Baby

A Story Of Money

It was late in the month of October and the weatherman said chance of snow tonight.This day would turn out to be one of many that just seemed to turn out right.A neighbor of mine had to work all day and couldn't wait to leave work and break away from the beaten path and called me and asked if I would like to go to bingo tonight.The words weren't out of her mouth and I was asking what time.I happened to be home today and I needed any excuse to get away.My husband was driving me crazy.He was ranting and raving about something like he always is.I have learned many years ago not to pay attention and we get along real well.Why not after 18 years later happily married like any other ordinary husband and wife that can't spend a hour together before killing each other.I would of left on the first train out of here if the sex wasn't good.Money never seemed to be a problem until my husband went to invest in a good money making opportunity or so he calls it.It was more like a money making scam to the tune of $130,000 dollars.This wasn't the first time and won't be the last.As long as I can keep using those credit cards baby I don't care what you do.Plastic is King. An open highway to freedom many other people never dare to explore.So Bingo starts at 7 p.m. sharp and I will go there early to get good seats.The cover all tonight is $42,000 in forty numbers or less.Now that would be sweet.My friend is a nurse and a damn good one at that.She could of became a doctor if she didn't fall in love with her childhood sweetheart.Then they had a few children and everything changed.A club girl in her early twenty's .There wasn't a club that didn't know her by name up and down the local strip.It consisted of a half dozen night clubs and a couple of dives to cheezy to menton well I left a note for my husband telling him I went to bingo with cheri are wonderful neighbor and I will be back later.My husband was busy downstairs working on his next invention that is going to change the world.I think he is a hopeless sucker who hasn't learned the rainbow isn't shining in his part of town yet.I myself have never worked a day in my life and don't plan too.My husband better keep the cash flowing or he will be singing saprano real soon.So as the regulars pulled in front of Bingo and let the others out so they don't have to walk so far.Holding up the traffic so noone can get by.So I laid on the horn move it or lose it before I jam that car up your rump.I can also find a place for the bumper too.But she began to move so I was feeling pretty lucky tonight.I had a good morning that was more than luck.When my husband and I get to it there use to be no end in sight now after two and a half hours he wants a rest.What happened to the good old days when we use to go all night.So as I looked around and found a seat in the back closer to the doors so I could always see who is coming or going. A little phobia I have.I feel like I am being trapped like a labatory rat if I can't see the people around me.So I got settled in and got all my bingo cards I needed to win tonight. At least that was what I thought.I had the money already spent.Another cruise to the Eastern Caribean since we have been to the Western Caribean 8 times.This time I think it will be just the girls.Like a extended girls night out.I might even keep the win from my husband and I know I will never have to tell him since I am the best at keeping my mouth shut.Just like our wedding night where things got out of hand and I disappeared for three hours.That could of been the best time of my life.To this day my husband thinks I passed out in the hallway and never made it back to the room.He could never hold his liquor and won't admit it. I can drink him under the table any day of the week.But he has got to have his macho pride and so I let him think he is all that and then some. I love having the power over him and keeping him just where I want him.Hi over here Abby as I nicknamed her years ago.She strolls to the back of the room with eyes fluttering with those long eye lashes.She certainly knows how to catch all the guys attention.She can make every girl jealous with envy. Follow along with me... (A day for suckers the bingo thrill continues.....)

Oh my - I'm not sure whom to feel sorry for in this one - the wife or the hubby!

I'll wait until the next one to decide. :)
