Tonight was the scheduled night to take Malissa to Potowotomi Casino to play Bingo for the first time!  Krysta thought it would be a fun memorable belated birthday gift to give her sister. Malissa was excited to go and she even got carded by the security guard as we were headed towards the Bingo Ballroom and she gladly pulled out her ID card to prove she was 18 and can legally play Bingo now!
Boy, let me tell you if you have never played Bingo at this place do not go alone.... There is definitely a lot to know about the whole process, if you have been there then you know exactly what I'm talking about!  When we first got started it was a bit stressful because you have all these papers and bingo cards and tickets to fill out and then they start calling numbers and you have
to know what color card your supposed
to be playing on and what the design shape your supposed to be achieving and then they are calling "buddy" numbers and it's so confusing, you feel like.... OMG, what am I doing?  Thank God we were with a couple of veterans who helped us through this overwhelming experience because Malissa and I decided that if we weren't with the vets tonight that we were sure we would still be at the casino trying to figure it all out!!So thank you Krysta and Anna for your guidance tonight and I guess that's why you are both in the "Firekeepers Club" and we're not!!
This top photo was how messy my table was when I first got there and the bottom photo is Malissa first legitimate photo of her in an actual Casino!  The two of us managed to get are groove on the whole ordeal somewhere after the intermission and then we were good to go!! These photos were taken with my cellphone so I apologize for the poor quality!  I have a feeling it will be a while before I go back again because the more I think about it the more I'm convinced that I don't even need to leave my house to be that stressed out! LoL, just kidding, I will go back for sure!  Maybe next time I will leave as a winner.
