To lounge [a Middle English pejorative for "idle fellow"] is to engage in the most spectacular form of indolence as yet known to us. Unlike the flâneur, who loiters in the public square, the lounger - not to be confused with "lounge lizard," who merely poses as a lounger - prefers to outwit ennui in the cool, dim depths of a red-velvet-swathed bar (a.k.a. a "lounge"). Thanks to the recent cocktail music revival, this much-neglected term has made an astonishing comeback. See: FLÂNEUR, INDOLENT, INSOUCIANT.
