Hooky, Hooky, Hooky! Let's Play HUMP DAY HOOKY!!!

Admit it. You want to do this, too.





Fill in the blank:

When I play hooky, I like to ___________________________________!

Why, no, that's not just something to keep you busy while I'm off playing hooky.*

*Okay, so I just lied. That's totally what it is. But, really, I'm only doing it to set a good an example. I mean, I can't in good conscience recommend you do something I'm not willing to do myself, can I? CAN I??

Of course not. I knew you'd understand.

Now, shoo. Go play hooky.

WAIT! But not before you tell me your favorite hooky activity. Especially if it's naughty. ;)

My favorite hooky activity is lying in bed and reading all day. Not naughty, but decadent nonetheless. Ahhhhh.

"*cough, cough* Hello, boss? *cough, hack, cough*"

Um ... mine might be a little racy to say in public ;o) hehe

I would kill to be able to put my jet-lagged butt back in bed right now. *head thunk*

Karla Nellenbach said...

I second the reading in bed bit. That's sounds like something i'd do...but of course, i only call in sick when I'm actually sick *bats eyes* you believe that, right? RIGHT?!?!

Michele Shaw said...

I guess we are one in the same...yep, reading. I know it helps my writing, but I still feel like I have to steal time to do it:) Oh, and with reading there must be candy, lots of candy. Hooky from working and the diet at once. Go big or go home!

Sarah Pearson said...

Hmmm Linda, I've read and reread your post and you haven't actually told us how YOU'RE playing hooky. Assuming you're not in a paddling pool in the middle of the desert, I'd love to know what you're doing :)

Jessica Lemmon said...

I'm with the majority - lay around and read, and eat prepackaged food!

Do naughty fun things with Live-In Handyman :)

Well this was just a little *too* perfect for today. Have you been reading my mind? Was going to comment earlier, but I have been playing hooky from blogs and writing by . . . wait for it . . . taking a nap.

Lame, I know.

But man did I NEED it.

Now off to write and find me one of those pools. Thanks for never failing to brighten my day :)

Oh yeah, lay around in bed and read. Perhaps my better half would even serve me a delightful meal there, and then stay for a little (ahem) "laying around" himself.

Tiffany Schmidt said...

Apparently we need a California King bed and a slumber party. Everyone converge at Linda's and bring your books. I'll make cookies and we can all play hooky together.

i second sarah's comments. what exactly ARE you doing today, grimes?

hmm, reading in bed. yes, it's been said before, but what a delicious way to spend a day.

S. Schmidt said...

When I play hooky, I like to go outside and have a reading picnic with a stack of books. If the weather cooperates.

Having a reading slumber party like everyone else mentioned sounds way better.

HGTV.

Mine involves slogging for hours through rain to take photos of a distant waterfall. I must be mad!

Monica B.W. said...

I wanted to comment yesterday, but somehow blogger wasn't working. Ack!

Anyway, I have to admit, I had to google "playing hooky"!

And you know? I've always loved pools, but somehow I wouldn't want to bathe in that pool you have above, lol.

My ideal day of hooky is finding a new reality show on ON DEMAND that I can watch from beginning to end over the course of a day while lolling in bed with chips, salsa, and Diet 7-Up. (Sadly, I do this waaaaaay too often!)
