Our annual vacation spawned the following variations of "Bingo" (yellow cars, excluding trucks, buses and motorcycles):
Bing... no. Translation: it doesn't count if I can see for myself the car isn't yellow after all.
Fingo. Translation: fake bingo, or: that car looked yellow, and totally had me fooled. But it's white. Or tan.
Chingo. Translation: you are a cheater. I had that one first.
Squingo. Translation: squirrel!
Gringo. Translation: green car. Just to change it up a bit, and make my parents turn both ways to see who overheard me.
And, for the remainder of the month of July we are fun-electronics free. Translation: I don't get my Netflix, facebook, or blogs. Hubby doesn't get online gaming. Kids have no xbox, nintendo, wii, dvds (except the magic instructions one), or tv. So, dear readers, I'm signing off temporarily. See you August 1. I will be sure to back up and read your blogs for these next 3 weeks after I'm back.
Happy writing, all!
Can't hold on to victories
