Comment of Deangela Delancey :
I’ve had an opportunity to interview someone because I didn’t know the meaning of the word “bull-skate”. She is from Nassau Bahamas and is 51 years old. I asked her if she was familiar with the term bull-skate and she said “yes”. She referred to is as “someone messing around with you”. She also said “if someone throws a spider or snake etc. on you then they are bull-skating with you.” Moreover, she gave an example of bull-skating by saying “ if someone go to sit down in a chair and another person pull the chai from underneath them, then the person who went to sit down would say ‘bey’ you seriously bull-skating around me ‘dred’.”
