Playing Hookie at the Flower Mart
May 1st, 2016
The only time I ever played hookie from school was in 1967 when I was in middle school. My best friend and her mother were going to the Flower Mart and invited me along.. I asked my mother if I could take off school that day and go with them but she said no. I think that was one of the few times I ever defied my Mom, I thought she was very unreasonable as I seldom missed a day of school. My friends mother knew I was hooking school but allowed me to go anyway. I remember feeling guilty all day and did not enjoy myself as I thought I would. It was a beautiful day and I never forgot the first time I hooked school or the first time I attended the Flower Mart!
