look up any word, like rito:

1. Slyly escaping scrutiny by being a phenomenal smooth talker.

2. Giving a long-winded fake apology until a person forgets why he or she was mad at you in the first place. This is a skill that cannot be taught and must be learned through experience.

Word origin: hybrid of gestalt and stalling.
"You can never get a straight answer from a politician. They are exceptionally good at geshtalling."

"He avoided the wrath of his wife by geshtalling about how insensitive he was for forgetting their anniversary."
