When I was a kid, I never won a prize at a birthday party. I did win with a high bid at a silent auction, once. My unluck is holding out because tonight at Bingo, I didn't win , either. Three of us from our compound went
to a local tavern and had their speciality , huge Idaho baked potatoes and a few drinks. I went a few weeks ago , had the same menu, except this time I drank Coke instead of beer, and I still didn't win. The prize table had the really big jar of pickles and
several boxes of over sized cold cereal. Everyone loves those two items, it seems, because they are the first to be chosen by a winner. This time, unlike the last visit, the place was full. They don't put the called numbers up so you can see them, but a man
with a big voice calls them out. To me ,with hearing aids, and noise from people chattering, it is hard to hear sometimes. No excuses, though, I just didn't win.
Our whole table was loser central. But we are determined to try again. Maybe our luck will change. I'm not counting on it.
