[Lynne] Do you kaia? (neologism)

Postby Lynne » Sat Jan 21, 2017 1:42 pm

I found myself kaia just now and wondered whether anyone else does? I know I've done it several times before, but wonder why I do it.

Can you kaia indoors? outdoors?

Does it require an object? another person?

Is food involved? technology? transportation? communication? entertainment? household chores?

Can people of all ages kaia? of all genders?

Can you kaia indoors? yes that's where i was outdoors? I guess so, but I can't think of an equivalent situation, but it's possible

Does it require an object? yes another person? no

Is food involved? technology? transportation? communication? entertainment? no to these household chores? possibly, with an ish

Can people of all ages kaia? yes, but I can't imagine tiny children doing so, but again I could be wrong of all genders? yes

I know what you mean, I've got three of my own at the moment. The oldest is 15 and is thankfully in really good health.

Can kaia be considered refreshing? do you feel better afterwards?

Is kaia done with the mouth? the whole body?

If I saw you doing this would it look odd? is where you position yourself relevant? Do you do this to prevent something happening?

Are you dancing with the curtains? Like opening and closing them to a rhythm? (I've done that...)

You mentioned way up there that kaia is an acronym? Is it an acronym for what you would call the activity (for example TWAC for "thing with a curtain")? Or is it an acronym for a phrase related to its place in the puzzle (for example PHAW for "placeholder action word")? Is deciphering the acronym helpful? If so, one word? Two? Three? Four? Five? Six? Seven? More?

Is there anything relevant on the curtains? Opening or closing windows relevant? Is kaia equally likely to happen during winter and summer? House heating relevant?

Does k in "kaia" stand for killing? "Killing an insect" was a promising beginning, but since insects are irrelevant, maybe it's about killing something else?

Darn this is tough... Sorry if any of these have already been asked.

Does one Kaia absentmindedly? Can it be habit forming? Does it have a postive or negative effect on any living creature? Have you witnessed anyone else doing this? Would your reaction be to laugh if you did? Does one look silly doing this? Would you be embarrassed to be caught doing this?

Are you more likely to do this while doing housework? Or while engaging in a leisure activity like reading or watching TV?

Keeping Arm In (the) Air? Yes indeed

************ SPOILER ****************

When I opened the curtains the other day I found that as I went from one to the other my arm was still up in the air, as if putting it down would waste a nanosecond of time or energy.

Thank you one and all and especially to Grip for allowing me to put this poor effort to bed - which is where I'm going with my stinking cold and sore throat.

Sorry about that Peter. I must have had a pre-cold brain burp. If I'd been thinking properly I should have put 'nearly' as an answer.
