I do love preschool but sometimes it is just not in the cards. That is when you play-up a cold. What is the best thing to do when you play Hooky? Go Fishing!
Yeah, I knew there was going to be problems when Daddy came home and I had to explain why I had been away from school and living it up with Papo and Deeda instead of learning.
As soon as Daddy came to pick me up I distracted him by offering one of the fish I had caught. Totally refocused his attention and I was off the hook (Hope you didn't miss my fishing analogy). I think this what you call a "Red Herring" in the public relations world.
