Sentence: Skiptag is the game my brain plays on me when it hides a name so well, I can't find it. The worst skiptag experience I ever had was when I tried word association to remember the name Peter and called him Dick. Word association doesn't help skiptag! It only makes it more embarassing!

Etymology: Skipping - MISSING. Tag - NAME.
