Mecca

Yes, I confess - I went to play Bingo last night with some colleagues - and it wasn't our first time.

Desperate times call for desperate measures, we really wanted to win something - anything - but ended up coming away with nothing.

I can't really describe playing bingo as being 'fun' because although it is, in a way, it's also really stressful as you have to concentrate so hard! Plus, when you only have a couple of numbers to go before you get full house, you start panicking (well I do) that you have to shout out quickly to claim the prize. Shame we never got to that point, although I was close a few times.

My eyes and brain were hurting by the end of the evening from the strain but I bet all those old folk who go all the time don't need to do brain training exercises!
