Merryandering

Definition from Bikram's non-sensical dictionary
etymology : meander - to wander aimlessly

merryandering - to walk aimlessly with gay abandon in the middle of the road with utter disregard to vehicular traffic


It's pretty irritating when people do that! I was cursing 4 girls that were merryandering at a busy junction today and were then bullied off the road by an irate bus driver that drove dangerously close to them, pretty much intentionally I am sure! But then I found myself merryandering just a little while later and I know now, why this happens to the best of us! Have you noticed, when the road is pretty much deserted and you happen to be walking on one side and decide to move to the other side, suddenly, vehicular traffic appears from nowhere! I stood stranded on the side I didn't wanna be on for quite some time waiting for the traffic to clear. When it did eventually clear, I crossed and stood on the other side for a very long time and saw the road deserted after me. Pretty irritating I tell you!

Nice word this : merryandering. A suggestion - replace 'e' with 'a' and it becomes, 'mArryandering'. Now that might mean something else. LOL! :))

@Lehar:> Yeah, that darned Murphy!

@ Kulpreet:> Hehehe...that'd be an interesting word too.

'Marryandering - The act of marrying aimlessly with utter disregard to the consequent responsibilities!'

Or maybe,

'The act of marrying with 'gay' abandon?'
