T’is the season…

for bingo!!! Bingo played a big part during my childhood years. I remember learning the numbers while I was seated beside my mom playing bingo with our relatives. Let me make it clear, they play bingo not to gamble but to pass their time. They would join two long tables or squat on the floor inside the house during the rainy season.

I still vividly remember when Mt. Pinatubo erupted, it also happened on a rainy season and we were stuck inside the house, bored and clueless what’s going to happen next. So to unload our worries and lessen the boredom, we took the bingo set out and entertained ourselves. Imagine, there was no electricity for over a month, meaning no TV, not even a radio. We had a battery operated radio transistor but we’d rather use the batteries for our flashlights in case of emergency.

Anyway, back to bingo, I make sure that we always have this set in our household, it does help a lot passing our time. There was one time when hubby was here last year, it was in June and a rainy season, power went off, so what did I do? Taught him to play bingo, the Filipino way haha! Guess what? He won around a hundred bucks.

Now, if you’d ask me what made us busy during the past week aside from cleaning up the mess that these last two typhoons had left us, well, nothing else but played b-i-n-g-o!!!
