Tuesday, there was a Senior Fair. Seniors had the chance to get free health screenings, information about social services, and free giveaways.
There's also Free Bingo. With celebrity callers. Minor celebrities
Minor celebrities meaning NewsWatch 12 personalities.
Kaylin Krashesky, Erin Maxson, Me, Chris Leone, and Kristin Ketchell
I called Bingo from 10a-11a. It was really fun. Made some jokes (B-4, and after) and told them my theory that B-13 would be a winning number.
I felt like things were going well.
Until I called the wrong number.
The Ball was G-54, I looked too quickly, and it said G-55.
Krisin saw the mistake and corrected me.
I got booed. By a few dozen seniors.
If that weren't enough, there's video evidence of all of this.
Kaylin was in the room, shooting a story on the fair and our involvement. She happened to be rolling, when the mistake was made and the boo-birds came out.
It got quite the laugh in the newsroom.
Some nuggets you might want to listen for:
Senior saying: Come on!
Me saying: My contacts are a little blurry today.
Kristin: You can't send a man to do a woman's job
I like to think the crowd was booing, because we had such a good relationship.
Yeah, that's what it was.
