Have you ever played hooky from work/school a la Ferris Bueller? What was your fake illness, and what did do that day?

Oh yes. Anybody who says that they have not played hooky from school or from work would be telling a "no no." Anyway, here is what I did many years ago while I guess if I remember correctly was during Middle School. The night before, I told my parents that I truly was not feeling well. I also said that if they said that nothing was wrong with me, then I would have to find a way to truly show them that I was sick. I said that I was going to sit in my room and hold my breath until I turned blue and make myself sick. Well, they kind of laughed and said, "You just do that. When you pass out, we will come and revive you." I just laughed and said, "I will show them." The next morning, I woke up and whammo, I was sick! Ended up with at least a 102 temperature and had the flu and was out for a couple of days including the weekend. Yea! From work, I played hooky a couple of times. I did not regret it at all because I only did this when it was a firm that I did not particularly care to work for anyway.
