gallivant \GAL-uh-vant\, verb:

1. To wander about, seeking pleasure or diversion; gad.
2. To go about with members of the opposite sex.

Gallivant has an uncertain origin, but likely stems from a playful take on gallant, “brave, spirited, noble-minded, or chivalrous.”

Horace Waller loved to gallivant around town with his new mistress Daisy. She was a magnificent specimen of the gentler sex- her lips were always painted scarlet red, and a tight bustier made her large bosom even grander.

When the other women stared and whispered nasty things as they passed by, Daisy would turn to Horace and say very loudly, “Oh, what a bother these jealous and capricious ninnies are!”
