'Cause that's how I pronounce Kaige. Don't like the idea of imposing, begging or mooching. ;)

I figured it had something to do with your name.

But you do beg for words...there isn't anything wrong with that, though!

Well, I never would have thought of that! I pronounce your name Kayj and that *points up* is Kadj, so there is no similarity!! SO THERE! Kayj = Demanding of words! which is OK, it's what we're here for.
