“Reckless”: use in context explanation
Dick is in his house when suddenly he spots 2 young and pretty girls outside, walking and chatting. He wants to impress them and draw their attention so he decides to sit on the window with his legs hanging out. This is a very dangerous behaviour and he might risk falling out. He thinks he is cool and waves to the girls to say “hi”. But the girls don’t share his enthusiasm. They think it’s reckless of him to do it and they are surely not impressed by this kind of behaviour. They tell him he should’t do reckless things and he should get back to his house.
