Can saying "BIINGO" out of context get people killed?

It was a stressful day for me yesterday and I made the mistake of taking valerian tea before going to bed. It’s not the first time valerian has given me nightmares. Last night’s nightmare was unusually vivid.

What I remember most clearly is seeing my old aunt playing “B”. For many years she had a serious gambling problem. She also developed a number of superstitions. One of them is that she would never utter the word “BIINGO” outside of a BIINGO Hall. As kid with strong ocd tendencies this struck a chord with me to the point of stopping using the word altogether.

This morning I woke up believing I might have right all along, BIINGO being a secret word for murder. Can you relate to this? Have I inadvertently killed people?

PS. I’d really appreciate it if you didn’t use the word BIINGO as it is usually spelled. Thank you.

You know how you keep thinking you don’t have SZ? Sounding more and more like you do. No, using the B word outside a B hall won’t get anyone killed, will just make people think you’re a bit loopy if you’re shouting a word out of context.

This reminds of the great fiction Dune. Muad-dib.

It is pure fiction, let me tell you! :slight_smile:

I blame the pigeons :stuck_out_tongue:

Ha, ha… No i can’t relate at all. But i liked the small story. You should write a book with all of your looney stories.

Years ago i suffered from nightmares. Suddenly in the nightmare i realized i had killed some innocent people, and woke up terrified and feeling guilty.

It came after one of my acquaintances, a girl, was brutally murdered. It came as a chock. I was interviewed by the police, because we were hanging out in the same nightclubs. I still, occasionally have nightmares about her. She was an adorable, pretty girl, such a waste.
