Multiple Choice Pop Quiz

Will I be: 
1.out of pocket
to be out of control; way off base. usually deserving of a good slapping or a full-blown butt- kicking.

2.out of pocket 
To leave your designated area or be out of range.
3.out of pocket

It is amazing what you can find on the Internet, who knew that "Out of Pocket" has such a wide variety of meanings. 

Sadly there are time when I am out of control and in need of a good hard slap or possibly a butt-kicking ( I will say that I took some editorial liberties and chose a different albeit not as colorful substitution in definition 1.) 

Also there are many more time when I find myself paying (and paying and paying) for many things out of my own pocket as well.

But the correct answer is #2. 

I will be out of pocket for the next few days. I hope to be able to check in periodically, however as John Lennon once wrote:

Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans.
