Every time, I laugh.
Not many people have the time to actually make a 2020 bingo card, so I did.
Here you go, moms. Take a sip, eat a chocolate, or use the kids’ mismatched game pieces to mark your progress as you go through the card. It’s been quite a year and it’s not over yet!
|Cried inexplicably hard at the death of a celebrity.||Screamed at a screen with the fiery rage of a thousand suns.||Lost power – and all hope – during an unexpected natural disaster.||Wore a mask more often than a bra.||Ugly cried on a Zoom call with friends. Or co-workers.|
|Spent money on clothes/shoes that will go out of style long before you have a chance to wear them.||Craved a visit to the kid place you hated the most before 2020.||Developed a physical injury (caused by stress) you didn’t even know was possible.||Repeated “Six feet, six feet!” internally, if not out loud, as a close-talking acquaintance ignored social cues.||Took refuge (possibly with a bottle) in a closet because every other space in your home was taken. Or visible.|
|Sought release in the reruns of a favorite show because the combination of nostalgia and lack of surprises was too hard to resist.||Googled a simple math problem because your addled brain has forgotten every numerical concept you ever learned.||Wept in gratitude as the curbside librarians brought you yet another load of books without mentioning the overdue ones.||Went an entire day without putting clothes on the children. Or yourself. Or maybe just your bottom half.||Yelled at a fictional character in a book or on the TV for hugging without restraint (I’m looking at you, Emily…in Paris).|
|Lost faith – temporarily or otherwise – in a political, spiritual, or community leader.||Shrieked into a pillow after a frustrating educational experience.||Felt concern/respect as you listened to the kids battle the villain COVID for supremacy.||Had an awkward conversation with family or friends about differing COVID viewpoints.||Was completely awed after witnessing the empathy or brilliance of strangers.|
|Started a sentence with “When the pandemic is over…” and then promised your child the moon.||Splurged on a kid toy because you were convinced that life would be manageable if they had that.||Missed your parents (or other friends and family) in a way you haven’t since your first sleepover.||Recommitted to eating better after confusing hunger for boredom. Again.||Branded a child or spouse with a devastatingly bad haircut at home.|
