You might find it surprising (I did) that according to my favorite online definition resource, the word jiggy has actually been around since the early 1930s:
jig·gy [jig-ee] adj., jig·gi·er, jig·gi·est. Slang. 1. nervous; active; excitedly energetic. 2. wonderful and exciting, especially because stylish.
Origin: 1930–35, Americanism; origin uncertain.
I typed jiggy into my Google search bar and was awarded with 1.5 million results. Who'da thunkit? Among these are Google's own definition:
jig·gy /'jigē/ adj. US informal 1. uninhibited, especially in a sexual manner. 2. trembling or nervous, especially as the result of drug withdrawal.

Guess that means I can go to bed now.
The WGH is undergoing wisdom tooth extraction tomorrow, so there's no telling what time you might see me. Think of a really good "K" topic, and share it with me on Facebook or Twitter (or in the comments here). In the meantime, read a book!
