There is a particular word for the action mentioned in Title line. I've not been able to recall it despite I've tried my best. Can anyone tell me what 'verb' that is which we used for such action? i.e. to play with fingers on the floor for nothing but even with absent mind, drawing lines with fingers. When we are just sitting doing nothing and deeply sunk in thoughts, we move our fingers on the floor as if sketching or drawing lines.
Even if it's done with a stick, such drawing that has no purpose, what verb should be used? 'draw'? or something else? When I was a kid, I read a word for this thing but it now doesn't occur to me. It sounded like SCRABLE or something like that.
