hocus bogus

So I started going hocus bogus and stopped getting picked on. Sometimes I got together with some mates at the Cafe de la Gare. There was a plumber, an accountant, and a civil servant.  Obviously thery weren’t plumber, accountant, or civil servants. They’re all together something else. But nobody notices, because they fake it, they go hocus bogus eight hours a day, and so they’re left in peace. They live inside in hiding and only come out at night in dreams and nightmares.   -Hocus Bogus by Romain Gary as Emil Ajar
