A workmate of mine has a penchant for using the word pootle in conversation. Pootle is a great word. POOTLE. There it goes again.
As you may be able to tell, this word makes me laugh every time, a reaction which was only exaggerated by reading the Urban Dictionary entries for it:
1. pootle - To move leisurely, with or without purpose.
A: Where are you going?
B: I’m just pootling about
A: you strange person
A: I fancy a pootle. Who’s with me?
B: Hurray! From now on, I shall pootle everywhere.
2. pootle - To roam or wander
I’ll just pootle down to the shops
3. pootle - A small, fluffy creature, often seen pootling along the ground.
“There goes a pootle, pootling along.”
I declare this day POOTLE SATURDAY! Wherever you’re going today, make sure you pootle there. Pootle on, friends.
