Hi I want to know if the correct written characters for boketto (To daydream) is spelled ぼけっと or ボケっと
asked Aug 4, 2019 at 20:25
ボケっと seems to be used primarily for describing someone spacing out and being unproductive, as shown here in these example sentences.
It's no crime to just idle the whole day once in a while.
Don't just stand there like a lump, start taking notes!
