Bingo Saturday night Dad washed, I dried the supper dishes while Mom armed herself for Early Bird bingo at seven in the church basement: her lucky piece (a smooth quarter she’d won the first time out), seat cushion, and a White Owls box of pink plastic markers.

Dad read the paper watched TV with me until Mom returned, announcing her triumph with a door slam and a shout “I was hot!” Flinging her hat, twirling out of her jacket, she pulled dollar bills from her pockets before setting them free to flutter like fat spring snow.

“Ninety-two dollars!” she squealed as Dad hugged her off the floor. “Ninety-two dollars!” In bed I listened to mumbled voices planning to spend the money- on groceries school clothes A leaky radiator- and wished she’d buy a shiny red dress long white gloves and clickety-click high heels.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
