Playing Hooky

IMG_20180302_095336432I played hooky from school today.

I know I am the teacher, and technically it isn’t hooky, but it feels so much better to say it that way. It means all the indulgences of today (a couple of which I might share with you) feel much better….wickedly better.

Someone asked me why I was taking today off. My only answer was that I could.  So there.

So, far I have enjoyed my leisurely drunk cups of coffee and Pillsbury crescent rolls. Unhurried coffee is an excellent way to spend your morning.  As for the crescent rolls, I’ve had croissants in Paris with a heaping bowl of hot chocolate–this is merely a morning snack.

I have no pictures of the crescent rolls because they weren’t very photogenic. I bought the tube when it was on sale and I am pretty sure it was nearing its expiration date.  They tasted fine, but they couldn’t compete with the food photographs I have seen on WP.

      It isn’t as good as the morning, but still pretty good. The class I am not teaching today is good, but I would have had to work late. This seems so much better.
