And Today Is…

June 19 is World Sauntering Day, described by HolidayInsights.com as “a day to saunter here and there, wherever you go” — with “sauntering” defined as “not a walk, jog, trot, or run. Sauntering is a form of strolling. Sauntering is a very casual, yet stylish, form of movement from point A to Point B.”

yeah it's a nice day out- but what if it's raining?- is it possible to saunter in a downpour?

I thought sauntering is what gay people do. Being from Texas, I'm not sure. All our embryoes are checked and refrozen if need be for later thawing and conversion by Dr. James Dobson.

Studying Chaucer years ago, I learned saunter was a contraction of two words Saint and Terre and implied walking in a holy manner across the earth as on a pilgrimage.

Other sources mention this, but also add the epistimology is unclear.

Additional references explain its origin from Middle English santren, to muse, which also holds a sacred meaning.

I hate sauntering. I love perambulating.

Hmmm... I prefer peregrinating.
