Gallivant

That reminds me of my mother.
Don’t be out gallivanting all night, you’ve school tomorrow.
I’d go to the café, meet Froggy and Chester, nurse a Coke for three hours.
She and Froggy are long gone.
When in Scotland, I visit Chester.
We still don’t gallivant.

    Who taught our mothers the meaning of the word gallivant. It seems I’ve always known it. I never use it, until now. Love listening to you read.
