I began asking questions every Tuesday since 2007 in an effort to get to know my readers, for you to get to know me and to encourage conversation between everyone who leaves comment, so feel free to comment to each other.
If you write a blog or website I will link back to your site, plus, I must warn everyone who comments, if I like your answer it may show up in a published post.
Although, please let me know in comments if you would like your answer to remain within this post and your wishes will be respected.
Alright, now's the time to tell, Have You Ever Skipped A Day Of School?
I'll be fair and answer first:
Have You Ever Skipped School?
I'm ashamed to say that yes, I have, although I rarely skipped the whole day. In high school I skipped math class on a frequent basis and never got caught, but one crispy Spring morning a friend and I opened our front doors to the intoxicating fragrance of Magnolia Fuscata's, which are tiny magnolia blossoms that smell like banana's. Magnolia Fuscata's are one of the most heady scents found in the Southern United States, so we when we stepped off the school bus, we couldn't resist making a run for a field of clover across the street from our school.
Once we realized we hadn't been noticed and we caught our breath, we lay on the soft bed of clover, laughing, then opened our books and began to read. -novels not textbooks-
It was blissful, I can still feel the feathery clover and smell the promise of Spring on it's way...until...we heard footsteps marching in our direction.
I don't know why, but we pretended we didn't hear him, when our Principal said,
"Miss Clemmons, just what do you think you're doing?"
I think my friend was relieved because he didn't address her by name, so she just kept reading, it was if she thought if she didn't speak, he wouldn't see her.
But, the reason he said my name was because when he called my house and asked if I was ill our housekeeper told him,
"No, she's not here, and she's not ill, she's probably across the street in that field of clover reading. Go look, I'm sure you'll find her."
Okay, that's my confession, now it's your turn: Have You Ever Skipped A Day Of School? And, if you never skipped class, why?
Please feel free to grab a Brag Tag for your blog/website to let everyone know you had the courage to tackle Tuesdays Question. In any event, thanks for being such good sports, and have a super great Tuesday!
Note: I cannot remember how to add the link to the image, so I beg your pardon. Although, you can still add the tag, I'll figure it out eventually, and do not feel bad if you would rather not post it. I completely understand. You cannot post everyone's images, besides some of you may prefer to keep your courageous actions to yourself. :)
Thank you for visiting A Nice Place In The Sun.
