Today, Bubba played hooky from school. It was a beautiful, sunny, warm day. We watched O’Baby with Blondie.
We really didn’t do much. We didn’t go anywhere, unless you count the sporting goods store. (We got Bubba a really great new mitt.)
We just hung out.
Bubba and O’Baby played out on the deck with the water toys on and off all day. Blondie gave Ruthie a bath. Blondie and Bubba attempted to get O’Baby to nap on the big bed. The Princess and Blondie went shopping. Blondie helped me shampoo the rugs. The Princess fixed Bro’s do-it-yourself haircut. Everybody was over for dinner again.
Bubba occasionally would say, “I really like playing hooky!”
One by one, everyone left or turned in. The house got quieter and quieter. Now the night breeze floats in through the window. The fresh air clears the cobwebs out of my head and carries my worries away.
I really like playing hooky too.
