S is for Skinging

A new word that I learnt today. ” Rule Number Nine was Skinging. Skinging meant leaving the school premises  by day or night.”


Did you ever play truant and skinged out of your hostel/ boarding school at night?


Entry for letter S.

  1. Alas, no. I always wished that I could go to boarding school when I was a kid. Not because I wanted to leave home, but because all of the cool stories in books featured either orphans or kids in boarding schools.


  2. That reminds me of a child who was sobbing his heart out after reading Oliver Twist. When his concerned mother rushed to him, assuring him that he would never be left bereft like Oliver as his parents were there for him, the child sobbed all the more and told his mother that he wished to be an orphan as all the adventures happened to them. Wish I had seen the mother's face. :)Thanks for visiting the blog.
