"Don't Do It!"

Patience
is what it's all about when a train is sitting
as in NOT MOVING on the track.
(I could make all sorts of analogies with this one,
but instead, I'll leave you to think of your own.)

We (Mom and I) sat in the car waiting for a l-o-n-g time.  Finally, the train began to rumble slowly down the track.  This made us late for Mom's Bingo game at the senior center.  Upon arriving late, I found there was an unwritten rule about coming in late for Bingo.  The rule?  "Don't do it."  They don't take kindly to late arrivals. Mom didn't seem to pick up on the vibe.  I got the message loud and clear.
Too funny!!

Oh my, who knew that people were that uptight about Bingo. They need to relax, after all stuff happens.

Sometimes, rules are made to be broken! :)

watch out for those bingo people they can be mean. I went once with my mom and holy cow that was the last time I sat in someone's seat and you would have thought I murdered someone.
