Cowart's Common Room

Are you a pfaffer. I'm a pfaffer. An ace pfaffer. I am pfaffing now, posting in PC when I should be getting ready to go out. Have I spelt pfaffing correctly? The words means to engage in pointless activity without purpose of object: browsing the internet, catching a paper or magazine, checking you've turned off the gas for the third time, wondering what to wear and being indecisive. How can we eliminate pfaffing?

Arosebyanyothername's Avatar No, you have spelt it incorrectly. No 'p'. Faffing. So, just stop faffing and get down here - the supper is waiting.

Lily's Avatar Yes I faff, displacement activity makes it sound so much more purposeful!

Arosebyanyothername's Avatar Good idea - I will encourage it. I need some help with the costumes for the play.

Fennie's Avatar I'll have you know I won a prize for needlework when I was seven or eight! Much to my parents disgust.
