All the kids were goofing around on the playground.


Hi,
Is "goofing around" in the above equal to "monkeying and fooling around?" Thanks.

    Hello Arueng,

    The answer to your question is yes, in the context of the sentence.

    A simple definition for goofing around would be "playing". But, "monkeying around" or "fooling around" work well with children in a playground.

    With adults, "monkeying around" or fooling around" can strongly imply inappropriate sexual activity. Just to keep you informed:)
