: Does anyone know what the term "squirely" really means and where it came from? Thanks!

Are you thinking of "squirrelly," meaning like a squirrel? It describes someone who's ditzy, scatterbrained, flaky. Squirrels run around a lot and often change direction.That's my guess about where it came from.
