Playing Hooky – Conversations with Stella

I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Explain, please, Lady Human!

Me:  Explain?

Stella:  You were gone for 200 years today.

Me:  Sorry, hon, but your understanding of time is a little skewed. No way is today 200 years long.

Stella:  A likely story and a poor excuse.

Me:  Look, sometimes I go special places where I cannot include you.

Stella:  Then those places cannot be that special. What was it this time? One of those places that sell those sticks you scratch paper with?

Me:  As a matter of fact…

Stella:  Did I give you permission to go?

Me:  I don’t need permission. I am not a student playing hooky, okay!

Stella:  If you had stayed around here, we all could have played hooky and you would not be in trouble now.
