Love for Words – Gallivant

April 14, 2017
___ To Gallivant is to actively enjoy life’s treasures, particularly those that include roaming, or mingling with the opposite sex.

Merriam-Webster defines “gallivant”:
1. to go about usually ostentatiously or indiscreetly with members of the opposite sex
2. to travel, roam, or move about for pleasure

American Heritage Dictionary defines “gallivant” as:
1. To roam about in search of pleasure or amusement.
2. To play around amorously; flirt.

Those who gallivant have a wanderlust. They by nature, partake in exploring environments they enter and engaging folks they meet, particularly folks of the opposite sex.

Love the alternative spelling “galavant.” Use either spelling per your whimsy.

Do you have a nature to gallivant?
