X was invented by Y. Once a rubber ball was bouncing underneath a table and X tried to fetch it while it was bouncing . Usually X would have been reprimanded for disturbing activities when there was company in the house, as there was then. But this time his manner of fetching the ball created an uproar of laughter from his mother's friends. Stooping with full-bended knees, but with his back and head vertical, he managed to fit under the tabletop while scooting forward reaching for the ball. This squatting manner was requested by members of the family many times thereafter for the entertainment of visitors and soon, from their appreciation and encouragement,X looked forward to the ritual.  Soon after it was forgotten , X remembered it during a show . Identify X and Y .

hehe.. whats the good word??.

There are several theories about the origin of the term "X" . The Sicilian adjective may derive from the slang Arabic mahyas (مهياص), meaning "aggressive boasting, bragging", or marfud مرفوض meaning "rejected". Roughly translated, it means "swagger", but can also be translated as "boldness, bravado". In reference to a man, it signified a bully, arrogant but also fearless, enterprising, and proud. In reference to a woman, however, the adjective meant beautiful and attractive.

The word made its first official appearance in 1865 in a report by the prefect of Palermo, Filippo Antonio Gualterio.
