The act of sitting on a porch and talking, possibly devising the master plan.
When all else fails, go porching and soon everyone will be content.

Generally begins during the afternoon and can be known to last for hours.

Chillin on a porch for an extended amount of time.
 Preferably smoking,snoozing, drinking brews,
 and watching the cops roll on by.

Porch sitting, i.e., sitting on a front porch or stoop, usually of a private residence is a leisure activity which can be a direct or indirect form of social interaction. While engaged in "porch sitting", people may "cat call"  bark (woof woof) or talk to and comment on those passing by.
 This activity is a staple of most urban areas in the United States, and helps contribute to a lively atmosphere, for those sitting and also those passing by.
This activity is most common during good weather, especially on warm summer nights and weekends.
Porch sitting was once considered to be a status symbol.

Because we want to know:
Do you watch the world go by from your front porch?
