March 6, 2009 - Jennifer Brookens
Last night, I was online chatting with my cousin who is expecting. Sharing pregnancy tales, she complained of the digestive woes that were keeping her awake.

"I was ready to go to Wal-Mart at 3 a.m., but I just saw myself as the pregnant lady in her PJs, messy hair and stocking up on Metamucil and Maalox and someone yelling out 'BINGO!'" she said.

Lost here? So was I, until my cousin explained the fine art of "After Dark Bingo" (Many use a specific store name here, but for equal-opportunity offending, we're going with the all-encompassing title).

There are actual bingo cards online for this type of "Bingo," a collection of the, uh, nightlife, if you will... of the people and things that really only seem to come out and shop at night. Some may seem cruel or nasty, but yet I was still laughing, because we've all seen at least a few of these items (and people) on the Bingo card. For the creative types, this could be expanded or narrowed down. Seriously, what items would be exclusive to "Fairmont after dark?" Think about it...

And if you happen to have to make a run to the 24-hour store at 2 a.m., it's a good guideline for either blending in, or making sure you're not welcomed by a chorus of "BINGO!"
