Word of the Day
Shilly-shally: "in an irresolute, undecided, or hesitating manner."
Essentially, it means to procrastinate...
If you're a geek like me and interested in word origins, here's what the Etymology Dictionary has to say on it:
"Vacillate," 1703, earlier shill I, shall I (1700), fanciful reduplication of shall I? (cf. wishy-washy, dilly-dally, etc.)."
Wishy-washy and dilly-dally are much more common around here!
