.... or ‘romp’, come to that? Why do the tabloids use these daft words?

I can't remember when I last cavorted - but that might be my failing memory. grin

Oh I wish!

I've got a dim distant memory of cavorting - I think I liked it!

The media likes certain words, another one is smirking and smirked, usually in court.😆

Am I alone in thinking the word 'smirk' actually looks like a smirk.
Cavorting sounds fun wish I could remember doing it .

The last time I cavorted I think I put my back out grin

...oh I hope I did a bit of Cavorting 😊

Do you think our romping and cavorting days are done? It would give us something to look forward to!!

Charleygirl Tue 13-Feb-18 15:35:14

kitty replaced joints would not take kindly to cavorting being looked forward to!

An affair is always a “sex romp ” isn’t it? Can you get one word without the other?

Anyone for a quick cavort round the supermarket? Oh, if only I dared!

grannyactivist Tue 13-Feb-18 18:10:45

I don't think I have ever cavorted or romped; must get round to it before me knees give way. grin

PamelaJ1 Tue 13-Feb-18 18:15:59

I haven’t cavorted for a very long time. I did prove I can still hop today though. Does that count?

Bellasnana Tue 13-Feb-18 18:23:42

No, I haven’t done much cavorting or romping either. However, I shall be going to visit DGD next week, for the first time in 8 months, and I fully intend to cavort and romp to the best of my ability grin

The last time I had a good cavort (or it may have been a romp) I decided to do a backwards roll on my bed.
I fell off, smashed my foot on every handle on the chest of drawers, and broke them all, and got wedged, upside down, between the bed and the chest.

MissAdventure that is VERY impressive . I hope it was only the furniture that was damaged. I don't think I have the energy for cavorting

MissAdventure Tue 13-Feb-18 18:35:20

Oh no, my poor toes were all black and blue, each with a curl of skin raised up like a 'quaver'.. grin

Charleygirl Tue 13-Feb-18 18:49:17

May I ask why?!!!

Jalima1108 Tue 13-Feb-18 19:22:22

The last time I cavorted was with DGD2; we were pretending to be ponies cavorting around the garden. That was a couple of years ago, I hope she's grown up a bit since then!

Sorry people, but in tabloid land, cavorting and romping involve members of opposite gender and imply SEX!
Sadly, I don’t think I’ve ever done either cavorting or romping. I led a sheltered life.

NonnaW Tue 13-Feb-18 19:41:59

Tbh, it all sounds a bit too energetic to me ( or is that just the aftermath of babysitting 2yr old DGS?)

MissAdventure Tue 13-Feb-18 19:50:50

Were you asking me why, Charleygirl?
If you were, I suppose its because I thought I could. But it turned out that I couldn't. By the time I realised, it was too late.

varian Tue 13-Feb-18 19:53:43

I do think you've earned your name MissAdventure

Could going barefoot on the beach and running into the edges of the sea then running back screaming when the waves crashed in and got me be described as cavorting? I did it over and over again and there was much screaming and laughing. It was a cold day so the beach was more or less deserted.

Now I feel quite sad that I think that is the height of my recent 'cavorting'. confused
