meaning to "pass
it by" or not use it.
also a toy
that is a 3 or so foot
with a loop
on one end and a ball
-like object on the other end. The loop goes around one ankle
and the object is to spin the rope around and "skip
" over the rope. Some versions have counters
on the ball, but they rarely work
or are accurate. The easiest
way to keep going on one of these toys is to just keep walking and stepping
over the rope
as it passes under your foot.
