A term used to describe the act of one looking blankly at something as if they are about to have a seizure. Staring in a daze, so deep in thought that he or she does not realize what he or she is staring at.
named so because one who is going boob often has a look on his or her face that looks as if he or she is watching TV, or the "BOOB tube"
"Dude, Sally is totally going boob right now. She looks so dumBUH."
Alex: "Sally, look, Kevin is totally staring at your ass right now."
Sally: "Kevin what the H, man?!"
Kevin: "Oh my bad, I must have been going boob."
Jacob: "I was staring."
