Today I learned that I have never officially played hopscotch.  I guess I never understood it because I have never kicked or tossed anything while playing.
So I will focus on definitions 1 & 3 and ignore my ignorance, they say that’s bliss.
I hopscotched around many an endeavor today.  They were very light endeavors, or I wouldn’t call it ‘hopscotch’ but ‘trudged.’  I hopscotched around the menu having grease on it.  Small hiccup.  I pretended it wasn’t there.
I hopscotched over to the Dean’s office while hopping on bright red, orange, and yellow leaves.  I grabbed some on my way back to my office.  I had a little piece of paper to laminate and a big laminate sheet to do it with, so I threw my leaves in there as well.  Masterpiece!  I preserved the beauty of fall.  And for the small fee of $1.95, you too can have a bright red laminated leaf bookmark.  $8.95 S&H.
