Medieval equivalent of borrowing a cup of sugar - but the monks flee from the viking with the empty bowl.
The Scottish Word:

Forloppin.

“Ah wonder if that counts as forloppin especially when we were jist efter a bowl o drinkin sowans for the ship’s cat.”

Translated:

forloppin: runaway, renegade (of priests, friars or monks).

“I wonder if that counts as abandoning one’s friary especially when we were just after a bowl of the milky liquid from the soaking of oak husks for the ship’s cat.”
