Snapshots from Green Victoria

Today, Josie called me at around eight in the morning, irritated with Ashes because she thought she wanted to bunk school.

Now, I knew exactly what she meant, having lived in Eldredge all my life. So did Ashes, who adamantly denied wanting to bunk.

Corb, however, was totally at a loss. Even though he only grew up only about a half an hour away from where we live, he claims that he has never heard the word "bunk" before. When he asked people at work, neither had they. They referred to it as "skipping" school, or "cutting class."

It has me curious. Is "bunking" a local phrase? I thought that "national bunk day" was something recognized across the country.
