There’s an interesting blogging event going on over at KITTYKAT’S place. The name of it is ‘Word for Wednesday’.
Pick a word…any word will do. Write your thoughts on this word. This doesn’t have to be a long process. Make it fun, link back to her site and tag your post with W4W.
This sounded intriguing to me because I love words, especially words that aren’t commonly used in your everyday vocabulary.
Tooling around is the word I chose for my ‘Word for Wednesday’. I guess this would be considered two words, but I couldn’t come up with the right definition when just googling tooling.
Definition of tooling around – The art of walking around without a particular purpose in mind.
I love this word. It just sounds so mysterious and maybe a bit pretentious doesn’t it? My friend Susannah uses it now and then on her athingirl blog and I’ve been obsessed with it ever since. One day I’m going to post an essay with ‘tooling around’ in it. Just you wait and see. I must have tooled around at some point in my life. Don’t you think? 😉
- Andrew was tooling around campus before his next rehearsal.
- Harry tooled around the school building during his duty period.
- Jessie tooled down the street as she shopped for her children’s clothing.
- My eye was on the mannequin in the window as I tooled past the department store.
I think I just wrote that post with tooling around in it! 😉 Have you got a favorite word you’d like to share your thoughts on?
