I will admit that while I was on furlough, I spent way too much time surfing on my phone (wow… talk about a phrase that would have made no sense 20 years ago!) Lots of stamping sites, Vlogbrothers and Mark Rober YouTubes, too many dance compilations to the song Uptown Funk and of course The Trail. This led to what I consider massive numbers of wasted hours as well as monies spent that could have gone to better purposes.
One of these purchases happened two weeks ago, after I knew I would be heading back into Corporate America part time. It’s a Conference Call Bingo mousepad. If you’ve spent any time on zoom or other online calls the past year, you’ll probably recognize some of the squares: “Can everyone see my screen?” “Can you repeat that?” “I have to jump on another call.” I laughed out loud when I saw it online. It arrived over the weekend and I’ve had several chances to use it already. I’ve been using paperclips as “the dauber”. No bingo yet, but I’ve come pretty close a couple of times.
When was the last time you played Bingo?
