Boondoggling


This morning while playing a game of Scrabble with my girls, I was double checking the spelling of a word in my very worn out, falling apart Merriam-Webster, which I have had since the fourth grade, (I am a horrible speller and am constantly looking up words) when I came across my new favorite. "Boondoggling" a noun meaning a trivial, useless, or wasteful activity. Well I'll be hog-tied! Not only did I find a new favorite word, it actually stands for something that I am well experienced in!

I learned this word from a friend from Minnesota--this is what she calls the rock, paper, scissors game. Glad to learn it's a real word. :)
