Hey, I daresay the occasional man wouldn't mind prinking and yaffling, if it meant he didn't have to build hogpens.
dontcry commented on the word prinking
I must confess. I am fond of the occasional prink and yaff. I am a lady, afterall.
You're fond of doing that, aren't you?
Well, when I go a prinking and a yaffling (which, of course, I'm fond of), I want nothing to do with hogpens, or men, for that matter. So there.
Is that like pronking, I wonder?
"'Building hogpens is proper man's work, aye? None of this prinking and yaffling the ladies are so fond of.'"—Diana Gabaldon, The Fiery Cross (NY: Bantam Dell, 2001), 1397
