“Eh? What’s that sonny boy? Speak up!” the elderly shouted.
The adolescent at the front of the sterile room sighed, and shouted “B-3!”
“Is that B-3 or G-3?” someone asked.
“I said three didn’t I?! Use your logic, if I said three, could it be G?” the boy said. It made perfect sense to him.
Another person cried out, “Use it in a word!”
The boy fingered the red piece of plastic, feeling the characters “B-3” formed out in white bumps. He thought for a moment, then came up with a word. “B-3, B as in Bingo.”
After a moment of silence, the boy rolled the wheel, and the bingo pieces clattered against one another. He drew one and read out loud, “G-42! G-42!”
“Use it in a word!”
This time, the boy had a word ready. “G-42, G as in binGo.”
