I milver about three or four days every week. Some people might milver every day. Others might never milver at all. So, what does the verb milver mean?

My username placed at the end of the title for...uh...wordy reasons.

So should we start calling you Kyeannpilver?

Is milvering more common among women? Men? Adults? Children? Animals? People in a certain geographical location? Having a certain physical characteristic? Nonphysical characteristic?

Does milvering require a prop?

So should we start calling you Kyeannpilver? Yay! Balin got the wordy reason!

Is milvering more common among women? Men? Adults? Children? Animals? People in a certain geographical location? Having a certain physical characteristic? Nonphysical characteristic? Milvering is equally common (I suppose, I haven't really done a scientific study or anything :P) in men and women. It would most likely be more common in developed countries *inspiration strikes for another lateral puzzle*. Only humans can milver. Children are more likely to milver than adults. And I suppose a nonphysical characteristic (well, more like two) would be needed to milver.

Does milvering require a prop? YES!

Prop: Electronic? An article of clothing? Furniture?
Does one milver alone? With another person?

Prop: Electronic? An article of clothing? Furniture? Answer is E: None of the above.
Does one milver alone? This one. You could milver with someone else, but I don't think it's common. With another person?

Prop: Electronic? An article of clothing? Furniture? Answer is E: None of the above. What's D, then? :P

Is milvering a kind of fidgeting (or otherwise idle behavior?)
Would it be socially acceptable to do it with friendly company? On a public street? At a formal meeting?

Could the prop be considered a tool? decoration? food?

Is the prop a utensil? Does milvering involve eating? Drinking?

does it involve mashing your food? mixing food?

I am reminded of Peter365's "purple"-rhyming neologism, "jurple," which also involved food. Is the solution to this puzzle related to that one?

does it make a sound? Nothing to speak of (pun not intended) does it make a mess? Depends on who's milvering. I, for one, do not make a mess.

Licking your plate clean? Licking a spill off the table or your arm?

Licking your plate clean? Immediately thought of Hunger Games here ("We miss you Effie!") :-P Licking a spill off the table or your arm? No to both, but VERY OTRT

The thing being licked is a utensil? With some kind of food on it?

Licking a knife? Licking your spoon after finishing stirring?

I've never actually read The Hunger Games, but I do know someone who's an extra in the movie.

Licking a knife? YES!!! Time for a
***************SPOILER***************

A lot of the time, I have Nutella on my breakfast food of choice (ugh, why did this one have to be solved while I was fasting!!). Of course, I wouldn't want to wast the delicious hazelnut spread on the knife, so I lick it clean! The two nonphysical characteristics would be being greedy enough to WANT to do that, and of course not caring about the calories gained from doing it. I suppose that animals could milver too, now that I think about it. Oh well.
Look for my new puzzle at the bottom of the page!

Just the other day I saw a recipe for homemade 'Peanutella' in a magazine (Reader's Digest, I think). I sat and stared at it for a few seconds, then immediately dog-eared the page and promised myself that I would make it.

Love Milvering but hate Nutella. Nothing I like more than a good milver of a knife covered in strawberry jam/jelly.
