Sneak Peek at Are You Still Kidding Me?

BINGO Ain’t For Sissies

“What do you want to do tonight?” I asked my mother as I tilted my head to the side. We go through this routine every time I visit. Finding an activity that didn’t involve eating was as difficult as the temptation challenge on the Biggest Loser.

“Well, how ‘bout bowling?” my mom asked, pushing her eyeglasses up on her nose.

“Nah, too boring. Any other ideas?”

“Want to play miniature golf?”

No way. I can never get my ball past that stupid windmill.

“Too hard.”

“How about Bingo? Tuesday’s my regular night. I’ll introduce you to all my friends.”

Visions of senior citizens, bratwurst, and daubers danced in my head.

At the local American Legion Hall, florescent lights hovered overhead. A low hum lingered in the air as the crowd lined up to purchase their Bingo cards and instruction sheet. Over 200 players, ranging in ages from 40 to 90, jockeyed for their turn at the cash box. I chucked down $12 for nine Bingo cards.

Nine cards?! This may be more difficult than it seems.

People hustled to their seats bearing bulging bags of Bingo supplies like chair cushions, snacks, and daubers in neon colors.

At our table, my mother and her boyfriend, Buddy, arranged their lucky charms around the Bingo sheets. A rabbit’s foot, four-leaf clover keychain, troll dolls, pictures of my kids, and an elephant with trunk up encircled the table.

I plopped down in a seat nearby bearing only my purse and an open-minded attitude.

“Sorry young lady, that’s Thelma’s lucky seat,” a woman said, pointing to her chest. On the metal table, she slammed down a stack of Bingo sheets, a 2-liter bottle of Mountain Dew and a picture of two young kids, most likely her grandchildren.

“Oh, sorry,” I said, scooching over one more place.

I ain’t no dummy. I’ve heard about grandmothers banned for life by their Bingo club after a fight over a “lucky chair.”

What are reviewers saying?

“I love this book! Gustafson hilariously captures family relationships in a way that we can all relate! And her attention to detail really puts you in the story. Her “Bingo Ain’t For Sissies” had me giggling next to her at the table, eyeing all her mom’s lucky charms set out around her bingo card. With the holidays coming, be sure to pick up copies for your sisters, cousins, moms, grandmas and girlfriends. Gustafson doesn’t disappoint!”
