Lounging the activity of sitting, leaning, laying, or standing in a relaxed and lazy fashion. One might lounge both indoors and outdoors, though typically the location in which one lounges is conducive to such activity. For example, people typically lounge in the comfort of their dwellings, or perhaps by a pool or lake on a nice afternoon. It is less common to find someone lounging in a stressful or crowded or possibly dangerous environment, such as a subway station or outside during a snowstorm. In such cases, the characteristic relaxed quality of a lounging position would be more difficult to pull off while one’s mind or physical state of being struggles to remain calm. Other species, such as the cat, have a particular knack for lounging.
