Absquatulate, also obsquatulate, is American slang for “skedaddle,” or “get goin’.” It can also mean “to bicker.” I love finding and using obscure words.

This was one of those rare times when I had more than one title to go with. I thought about “Slipped on a Bandanna Peal,” and “You’ve Got Some Absquatulatin’ To Do.”
Anyway, well played, Edison. Now that’s how you misdirect an uncomfortable inquiry. But she’s not out of the woods yet. She’ll have a little-well, a lot-more manipulating to do in the near future. Plus, she and Stephanie are going shopping, so there’ll be some groovy 70s fashion on display! You’ll see.
