Menopause Test

Ring Ring

King:  Did you get the picture message?
Me:    When did you send it?
King:  A while ago.
Me:    I can't find my phone. I've looked everywhere. This is ridiculous.
King:  I'll call it.
Me:    It's probably in the car.
Beep beep.
Me:    I found my phone.
King:  Where was it?
Me:    Uh, I'm talking on it. (I haven't had a "land line" in 5 years.)

Because of our descent into dementia, I suggested we do something appropriate.  Bingo at the Elks Club.

With youthful minds, in contrast to our opponents, we were certain to redeem ourselves and escape with the winnings. Here's what really happened.
Me:  Huh?  I have to have a diagonal AND a horizontal line to win?
Old Lady:  Yes, but you can't use the free space on the diagonal..
Me:  WHAT?
King:  Did he just say N 39?
Me:  No, that was, like, 10 minutes ago.
King: I have a diagonal line.
Old Lady:  You need to have them on all 6 cards.
Me:  Is that a joke?
King:  Did he say N 47?
Me:  Just look at the board.
King:  Where?
Me:  What did he say?
Elks Member Assistance:  Are you okay?
Me:  I shouldn't have had wine with dinner. 
King:  I'm going to the bar. Will you watch my card?
Me:  Are you insane?
Old Lady:  How did you two even find this place?

Sounds like Mama's Friday night Bingo at the Waiting for Jesus Christian Towers.

Great post! When the old ladies are keeping 10 cards going and you can only manage 1, you know you are in trouble.
