Jake, are we skipping school today?
We still have to go to school Ma. We have to wear our school uniform, but no need to bring school bags. Dismissal is at 11am because we have mass for teachers to mark Teachers' Day. And I need to pay 35 pesos for food.
Your calendar says you have no classes today. What if you just stay home? You won't miss any new lessons. (that's me trying to skip the school drive for the day)
Huh? I have to go Ma. If not, I won't be able to claim my siopao (steamed bun)!
