I had never heard of this at all, till my wife mentioned it, one time.
And, even after that, I had only the impression that it was just
something that she and her girl friends had made up as they approached
puberty back in the late '50's. But it turns out to be known by women
from all over the country.

Who'd a thunk it?!
