(verb) A shortening of the common phrase "skedattle," it is dual-syllabic word that is more apt to be used in everyday life, due to common slang's fondness of phrases that are less than three syllables. It is commonly used to describe hurridly departing; last-minute recognizing that you have to leave.
HOLY CRAP! Look at the time! I've gotta skedat--sorry!
