Western Word of the Week - Showboating - #WesternWordoftheWeek #WesternWednesdays


Thanks for returning to our Western Word of the Day column. The next few weeks I'm drifting a little bit away from what we think of as truly "western" words to focus on some other vocabulary term that I've learned and wanted to share.

Showboating - flashy; showing off

Origin of the term: A new class of steamboats were created that were super-fancy and even had theatres.
