You do it, I do it.
We do it in the kitchen.
We do it at the art table.

"What's booprep?" you might ask.
Booprep is all the slow, boring, or tedious work that must be done to get something ready so we can do the fun part.
It's priming the kitchen walls before painting, preparing your ingredients before cooking so you have them at hand, putting the base coat of paper on tags, making a background page to cut up for collage, or covering wooded birdhouses with gesso.
Not all booprep has to be dull. I find cutting out collage bits a rather enjoyable form of booprep. Rolling yarn into a ball, however, is not -- especially when it's tangly or your executive assistant has started the work for you in advance and done it incorrectly.
You will not find this word in any dictionary, though I am considering lobbying the Scrabble folks to see if they might include it.
I discovered this word one day while commenting on Kristine Campbell's blog. It was my verification word.
I love verification words -- they're kind of a pain to type but sometmes they feel so serendipitous! I just love it when it's a real word that fits what the blogger wrote about. Or, even an "unreal" word that with a little juggling seems to come through.
Booprep. It's what we do.
