Be nice to your grandma – learn the Bingo Lingo!

Many grandsons and granddaughters across the globe have probably turned slightly narcoleptic when their grandma hit retirement age. I’m not going to deny it, we like telling the same story more than once.

But by giving a little extra effort as a grandchild you can avoid falling asleep when visiting, for example by learning the language your grandma speaks. Bingo is a big part of our language, and below you will find some carefully selected bingo terms so that you can keep up with the Bingo Lingo.

Remember, it’s always a good idea to give your grandma a present, even if it isn’t even her anniversary, birthday or name day. A pair of socks is enough to keep grandpa smiling.
