We were sitting in my living room when the conversation turned to "planking." Planking--in case you haven't heard of it--can include lying flat on a flat surface, or holding the body flat while it's supported in only some regions, with other parts of the body suspended. People usually take pictures of this and post them on Facebook, etc.
Goating--according to my niece, Sydney, who completely made the concept up--is where you climb to a precarious position and pose like a goat.
Upon hearing this, my son said, "Challenge accepted!" And immediately ran across the room to an unsuspecting Uncle Troy and jumped on his back.
You may be curious as to why I am writing this post. It is simple. If "goating" becomes a thing, Sydney will now get credit for the inspiration.
