Running . . . Prompt #710
Running away or running to? Have you ever wanted to run away? Did you run away? Why? Where did you go? Or: Did you have an ancestor who “rode the rails?” If you were to be a hobo, carrying all your belongings in a kerchief tied to a stick, what would you have in the sack? Or maybe you would have a knapsack. Research shows: A female hobo is a boette. A hobo is a migrant worker in the United States. Hoboes, tramps and bums are generally regarded as related, but distinct: A hobo travels and is willing to work; a tramp travels, but avoids work if possible; and a bum neither travels nor works. Be careful when you call a vagrant or homeless person a hobo — although this is exactly what the word means, it is a somewhat offensive term. Why yes, perhaps I went down the rabbit hole with researching! Thanks…
