>>LOL so true/tres bien. IIRC there is some native South Americanlanguage that has no word for "worship" or "pray." Instead they
have the metaphor of "wagging [one's] tail at god(s)." Kinda apt
imagery if you consider us humans Higher Primates...(...)czHANg23, Agent Provocateur

LOL! I find that expression quite amusing, but for other reasons
that I won't go into at the moment... ;)
>>Well, since you replied to my post, I'll reply to yours. :) I came up with a word
>>for the sound things make when they're falling downstairs: sakSaqa. It just seemed appropriate. <<
How cool! I don't think I would have thought of something like that...
probably because I'm rarely around stairs, and never (luckily), when
something is falling...
>>Later, when I was trying to figure out greetings (particularly, "Howare you doing?"), I adopted this word, translating to, roughly, "How
are you bumping on down the stairs lately?".Life can be that way sometimes. ;)
LOL! I love that, too! Interesting! :) :)
