Playing Hookie

Today we played Hookie...from the internet, the retail world, bookeeping & landscaping, busted pipes & barking dogs, from church, from the grocery store, the gas station, the bank, the post office, the telephone, the ghetto ... and some.
We found a beauty salon named 'Curl Up & Dye,' The Road-Kill Cafe,' wet misty mountains, long open roads, hawks as big as my torso, talking rocks that didn't say a word, 5 wild dogs that escorted us through the emerging pumpkin fields , 2 butterflies that I think were trying to show me the electric slide ... and some peace.

LOL Orhan!
Hookie, I guess also spelled hooky, means to 'skip' or 'cut' or 'pull a no show.'
Often a term used when in school, or actually more like when you are supposed to be in school, when your folks think you're in school and you are really elsewhere doing whatever it is you want to do & nobody knows but the person(s) with you.

LOL Orhan...what the hell does crayola mean? J/J ;) Couldn't resist!
BTW, the butterflies & hummingbirds have been all over the yard this week.

Oh, you guys! *giggles*

In the land of Auztrayla we say "pike", "wag" or just "truant". Personally I love the expression 'to pike' or to 'be a piker' since I've had it said to me so many times. It also sounds kinky, but I'll leave it at that.

'Truant' and 'truancy' are the propper words here too.
But, like 'piking' or 'pike'...'hooky' just sounds better!
LOL
