Word of the Week:

Skive
Prounounced: sky-v

Definition: to be absent without leave.

"Where wur ye fourth period? Wur ye skivving?"

"See your brother, he's a right skivver!"

This is something I was particularly good at.

I want to skive off work (is that how you'd use it?)

Dad was in the Navy and they just called it AWOL. Skivvies were underwear. If you combined the two meanings would that mean that you forgot to wear your undies one day? Sorry. It's late and we just had apple pie and ice cream. I think it's beginning to effect me.
