I am retired from remunerative labor, but I have several "jobs". One of my jobs is haptic. I have a door assigned to me at the church. Everyone who comes in must be greeted. In addition to a verbal greeting, this is usually done with a handshake or a pat on the shoulder. Some women require a hug or a kiss. It is a tough job but somebody has to do it.

I shall henceforth only call ushers or greeters "haptics."

I must admit I still prefer the good old standby, "tactile."

Perry: I'm sure you know the Red Neck expression "tetched
in th' haid". As in "Pore ol' Aunt Sucky she's tetched in th' haid, bless her heart."

I was sure someone would come along with a red neck comment, so now's my chance to put in a "bump" for another section of our alphadictionary.

Enjoy. :D

Slava: I not only enjoy that section of alphadictionary, the words and phrases are all in my regular vocabulary.
