Playing Hookey - Episode Nine


Ever skipped off from work, school or a family obligation? This week's episode of The Confessional is for you! Host Krissy Holmes talks to Ben Bright of Kingston, who got to leave work after an accident and wound up getting drunk at a hospital, and Donny Love of St. John's, whose parents still don't know he skipped an entire semester of college in Toronto. Krissy also talks to her grandfather in England, who has some hair-raising tales about skipping school during the Second World War.
