WE played BINGO today.

In my mind you play BINGO when you are very young at camp with your family or when you are very old on a cruise ship.  Wow, I am no longer at camp with my family...

A Canadian woman in line behind me to buy cards said “Are you from California?”   I was thinking, “Tan? Surfer’s body? How does she know?”  I asked and she said she could tell from my accent!!!  I set her straight that I have no accent.  And this from a oot and aboot Canadian.  I have never been pegged by my accent before. Probably because I never had one before.

Sadly, I did not get to shout out in my strong Californian voice, “BINGO!”
