A condition that attacks the male species when they are together at a social gathering, each one trying to outdo the next one in the "story-telling" department!

    Hey! I resemble that.

    It's a rash developed from exposure to too many small children.

    • Michelle Wallace on April 13, 2013 at 1:23 pm

      That explains my intermittent outbreak of strange and itchy rash-like spots… wonder if it's avoidable… without having to avoid the children, of course…

    I believe this has to do with pants, khaki pants to be specific. Kaki is a variant spelling. Evidently when the guys don the khakis/kakis they run a high risk of casual attractiveness or Kakidrosis.

    • Michelle Wallace on April 13, 2013 at 1:28 pm

      The Kakidrosis syndrome does seem prevalent amongst the game wardens…

    Hugs and chocolate,

    It's the lazy feeling you get after eating too much cake.

    • Michelle Wallace on April 13, 2013 at 1:33 pm

      … as if you want to doze off… heavy eyelids… sigh of contentment… I've seen the signs amongst the cake-eating section of my family. Actually, my over-indulgent sister often suffers severe bouts of this condition…

  5. Mina B. on April 12, 2013 at 3:18 pm

    Yeah if that were the case than I think many of the travelers from the Canterbury Tales suffer from that. 🙂

    Here's mine:  

    Kakidrosis:  When someone wears too much beige or kaki-color clothes they suffer from kakidrosis.  

    Used in a sentence:  Wearing hot pink will easily cure your kakidrosis.

    • Michelle Wallace on April 13, 2013 at 1:37 pm

      There's nothing better than bright dashes of vibrant colour to cure this… it takes the kaki- out of the -drosis… know what I mean…? 🙂

  6. Elise Fallson on April 12, 2013 at 6:58 pm

    The deformation of speech patterns due to spending too much time talking to toddlers. 


    • Michelle Wallace on April 13, 2013 at 1:39 pm

      This would be linked to my G-post? The gewgaws syndrome… goo-goo-goo-ga-ga-ga-ba-ba-ba-da-da… remember it?

  7. L. Diane Wolfe on April 12, 2013 at 6:59 pm

    A condition brought on by too many khaki pants?

    • Michelle Wallace on April 13, 2013 at 1:52 pm

      Check out the definitions of C.Lee and Mina B. above. Seems like you 3 ladies are in cahoots…  🙂

  8. Lexa Cain on April 12, 2013 at 7:28 pm

    "Ka" is what frustrated mothers babble when their kids get out of hand. Too many Ka's means she's suffering from Kakidrosis. 😉

    • Michelle Wallace on April 13, 2013 at 1:53 pm

      Check out Elise's definition. Sounds like you 2 are in cahoots… 🙂

  9. Mary on April 12, 2013 at 10:14 pm

    It's a type of lemur in the Bangladesh jungles. It spins webs from which khakis are made. It's true.

    • Michelle Wallace on April 13, 2013 at 1:56 pm

      I believe you. It sounds like an exotic creature… is it from the spider family?

  10. Julie Flanders on April 12, 2013 at 11:20 pm

    It immediately made me think of chronic bad breath, which is totally gross I know. But that's my definition and I'm sticking to it. 😀

    • Michelle Wallace on April 13, 2013 at 1:57 pm

      It's bad "kak" breath! You hit the nail on the head! 🙂

  11. DL Hammons on April 13, 2013 at 12:49 am

    At least our stories are TRUE….maybe exaggerated a bit…but true.  Not sure if the female species could say the same! 🙂

    • Michelle Wallace on April 13, 2013 at 1:59 pm

      Hahahaha! that's your story? And you're sticking to it? Come what may? 🙂

  12. mary aalgaard on April 13, 2013 at 7:16 pm

    People who are stuck in a rut and only wear khaki pants!


  13. mary aalgaard on April 13, 2013 at 7:19 pm

    Took a quick peek at the other comments and see I'm not the only one who thought of pants. I like Carol's def. refering to chocolate cake. I've had that!

  14. Nancy LaRonda Johnson on April 13, 2013 at 9:04 pm

    It's when you are stuck in an inability to think and are drowning in a thick fog of blankoutedness. Similar to a brain fart, it lasts much longer and you can seem nearly to be in a trance. But no, you're fully awake and aware, just for the moment, extremely stupid. It often happens during a job interview or an oral exam in college.

    • Michelle Wallace on April 13, 2013 at 11:17 pm

      I think it's also the technical term for the dreaded "writer's block"… 🙂

  15. Medeia Sharif on April 14, 2013 at 3:22 pm

    It sounds like some itchy, red, scaly skin condition. 

    • Michelle Wallace on April 14, 2013 at 9:15 pm

      Ouch! It does sound similar to the skin condition called psoriasis… it's red and scaly, and very uncomfortable.

  16. Julie on April 15, 2013 at 4:06 am

    I agree that it's definitely related to khaki pants. It's most prevalent in preppy fraternity boys who are addicted to wearing them, and suffer withdrawal symptoms when they're at the cleaners.

  17. Michelle Wallace on April 16, 2013 at 10:21 am

    I have this mental image of a group of frats, caught in the grip of a bout of "kakidrosis", a real "eye-candy moment" in their stylish jeans and T-shirts! But the long faces – what a bummer 🙂
