Monday Memory


Were just getting ready to go to the good ol' Docs,


During Christmas time my husbands work had a Christmas party, yes, they were all laid off at the time, but that is how the work afforded I guess.


They were giving away 7 42 flat screens, a million Itouches, and a trillion 100 dollar gift cards, Wii's, Play stations, etc..


It was in a huge building, where there was ice skating, pool, party, dancing, dinner. I love going there, watching the Tongans Ice Skate,


Is to DIE for.


I did not bring my camera, but I wish I did fo sho!!!


At the end of the night they were doing BINGO for gift cards..


We all started out playing, we had to teach the Tongans how to play. It was fun.. FUN... have you ever played? If you know, then you know how FUN it was.....


Good times.


The men gave up after a few times, really no one won, and the Tongan tempers started coming out, so they left and went to go play pool.


Us Women stayed.. NO one from our table won that whole stinkin' night.


Here is what I know about Bingo.....


1. Never ever ever play with a room full of drunk people.


2. Have Tongan woman sit beside you to make your night.


3. I have a temper like a Tongan.


4. Changing your bingo card each time you lose, will not up your chances.


5. I have NO LUCK!!!!!!


It literally took me a good 10 minutes after leaving that room to cool off, the men laughed all the way home.


Bingo is not for me,


Yeah! I got me some skillz..


Just no bleepin' luck...


During the giveaways for all the goods, everyone walked away with something, every person at our table.


Just not us.


The only thing that we walked away with was a 100 dollar Visa Gift card.


Yippee!! You say I am lucky?


Nope,
It was Skillz... let me explain..


They passed a dollar bill around the table, my husband wouldn't take it, the music, ended, I had it in my dumb hand.


They made those people with the bill stand up.


What? I am a shy girl? I can't stand up in front of 450 people!!!!


They made me.. I was as red as my shirt...


Then they made us sit in the front of the room, and bring a chair....


What!? NO Way...


My husband was sooo nice and took my chair up their for me, as he was dragging me by my feet.


As I was sitting there with about 60 people up at the front of the huge room, they announced that they were going to give a 100 dollars away..


I started listening.


They said that we were going to play survivor...


My table told each other, that I would win...


They would call out an item, we had to run around the room to find an item from someone, and run back, they would take chairs away while we were out, so each time the number would go down.


Their was 3 people left, a lady, a man, and little ol' me.


They announced to grab some toilet paper.


I felt a push.... Did that man just push me back down into my seat... OH NO!!!


It was on....


I ran, all the way to the back, pushed him back, yep, don't mess with me!!
Cuz you will get all messy!!!!!


Sat down first,
thank you.


Then two were left, me and the lady.


"SANTA HAT"



I jumped up ran over to the only Santa hat in the entire room. One of our Tongans in our group grabbed that dumb hat, put it in his shirt...


What was I to do? I punched him too.


Ran back, sat down, grabbed my gift card, red faced and all.


I was the dork of the party once again..


Skillz, I tell ya, no luck,


JUST SKILLZ!!!!!!

I won BINGO on our first/only cruise. I won $100 and used it to buy a watch/bracelet set so I could always remember.
Well, I lost the watch but I still have the bracelet and my memories!

Do you know what it means to have a hip war? I am from a family of mostly girls and a dad who thinks he's got hips. Do you remember Daddy-daughter dates? Well the dad's were playing musical chairs for the grand prize of a homemade chocolate cake and it was down to two...my dad and another one. The music stopped and my dad cocked his hip and swung and dropped right into that chair and won that chocolate cake (made by me of course...you know how good it makes a girl to know her dad has done major battle to get that chocolate cake she made?). You are dang funny, thanks for the memories! You tell Maka that we are all out here pulling for him and we love you guys!
