To “Piddle” or Not to Piddle???

My cat  is sitting in front of the door…looking at the rain …she is so relaxed!…she lazily looks up at me and then just settles in more … and that is what the rain does for me too…You either go out in it…or stay home and piddle  in the house…I love that word …”Piddle”

do things haphazardly: to operate in a disorganized way, doing one thing and then another without a distinct purpose or method …very small or trivial…

that’s probably what I’ll be doing today…Let’s see…I haven’t even gotten dressed yet…my bed clothes are my attire at the moment …and not really very attractive…since it’s a gown my Momma bought for my birthday over 15 years ago…I’ll eventually throw it away…but, it’s sooo comfortable…the more it’s washed the softer it gets!…and it reminds me of her…I have fixed breakfast…Bobby’s favorite…French Toast    with bacon …I even ate a piece…I’ll probably cook a good dinner too…That’s what I do on rainy dayscook or bake …The rain seems to make it quieter too…we talk quieter…we do things quieter…and just look like “lounge lizards”  as my husband says… somebody who lounges around: somebody who sits or walks in a casual relaxed way…Yes, that fits us perfect… so here’s to “Piddling”…a quiet, relaxed, rainy  day! 

“My Kids!”…

Piddling has two meanings…did you know?…the meaning I used…

do things haphazardly: to operate in a disorganized way, doing one thing and then another without a distinct purpose or method …very small or trivial…

and then “piddling” also means “urinating”…more than you wanted to know, huh?…this term is usually used by children when they have “TO GO!” It’s funny how kids use this excuse to get out of a lot of things…I have to_____…when taking a test I have to____…when learning something hard or different  ….I have to____…when wanting to get out in the hallway to see friends I have to____…when they just can’t concentrate on what is going on….I have to___…when they are bored …Actually, they usually say, I NEED to___…if NEED is used …it sounds more urgent…Have you ever done that?…So when someone needs to “Piddle” they probably are looking for a way out of the current situation they are in…Do you need to “Piddle”?
