cavort
ca·vort ( P ) Pronunciation Key (k-vôrt)
intr.v. ca·vort·ed, ca·vort·ing, ca·vorts
To bound or prance about in a sprightly manner; caper.
To have lively or boisterous fun; romp: The children cavorted in the water, splashing and ducking each other.


v : play boisterously; "The children frolicked in the garden"; "the gamboling lambs in the meadows"; "The toddlers romped in the playroom" [syn: frolic, lark, rollick, skylark, disport, sport, gambol, frisk, romp, run around, lark about]

Since cavorting is a spontaneous expression of joy, it's really not practical to set a date. When International Cavorting Day becomes a reality (and I think we can all agree it's just a matter of time) then everyone on the planet will be issued a Cavorting Card.

The card can be cashed in on a day when it's owner NEEDS to cavort and it will reimburse the cardholder for one day's wages.

in play:
As they passed the stately home with the impenetratable wall of tall bushes obscuring the front, Mrs. Parker remarked, "One could cavort naked in that yard if they chose." Mr. Parker who was no cavorter demurred.

Good word, Katy!

Imagine that girl, cavorting with strangers as she does! No good can come of it, I tell you, and I'll see to it!

One day those gambling lambs will rue their reckless cavorting.

Cavorting makes me think of someone who is vomiting because of a recent abortion.
