Canoodling? Really?

How can someone be expected to be taken seriously if they use this word?

You are OLD.

Canoodling sounds like such fun!

Making out sounds old fashioned and dirty!

No need to make a kerfluffle, OP.

R2, "canoodling" is a very old-fashioned word.

If anything, OP sounds like one of the younglings around here.

No, OP definitely sounds like a fortysomething. One of them went on a rampage over wedding etiquette in another thread.

To me it's a thirty-something word. And yeah, it sounds stupid. Similar to doodlysquat (a much older word).

The gossip columnists of yesteryear used to use this word a lot. "So and so were seen at a nightclub afterhoirs canoodling."

What's wonderful about this silly word is that it can mean practically anything you want it to mean, from two people talking/huddling together to public dry-humping and gropefests. It was the perfect CYA word for gossipy tabloids.

Nobody uses that word but the gossip press, and they definitely don't intend to be taken seriously.

"Canoodle" dates at least to the 1850s.

My grandmother, who lived to be 98, liked to use it. She was born in 1896.

I prefer spooning.

I thought spooning specifically meant when two people lie on their sides and hug with their knees slightly bent so they fit together like two spoons.

Ann Landers (may she rest in peace) used to use that term a lot in her columns. I always thought it sounded like some kind of pasta dish.
