Sure enough someone asked what a piddle stone is so we explained, as we said we would, by referring them to the American Heritage Dictionary definition.

pidĚdle (pd"l) v. pidĚdled, pidĚdling, pidĚdles. --tr. 1. To use triflingly; squander: piddle away one's time. --intr. 1. To spend time aimlessly; diddle. 2. Informal. To urinate. [Origin unknown.]
