K for K

K is a fairly unique alphabet in the English language, in that we don't use it as much as we do use C - Cat, Clay, Create, Commemorate and so on. It is usually a silent accompaniment to the beloved N as in Knack, Knock, Knot and Knit. But, then, it is a potent letter in its individual form, as K.

How do you react when someone says K to you, in response to something you ask them, say over text or whatsapp? 

Super Happy - You are in seventh heaven because that person actually bothered to respond that it doesn't matter they invested time that won't be enough to unlock their phone through touch id, to respond to you. Maybe, the response was from Ratan Tata or Mukesh Ambani.

Reasonably pleased - Your crush responded with a K to your tenth 'Hi'. Maybe she / he meant FO, but hope is a good thing, the best of things, and no good thing ever dies. 

Normal to ignore continuum - It is an acquaintance who asked you for some information, and you said "I don't know". K is acceptable in response. No?

Outraged - You just sent a 500 character message explaining how an induction motor works, along with tricks on how to remember the shortcuts in order to write the answer and pass the exam. And the receiver just 'K'ed you.

K is a potent letter, so remember the lessons before you respond with a K next time someone asks / tells you something. Are you ok with the person on the other end falling in the "outraged" pie of the chart, ready to kill you the next time they see you?

P. S. This post is the eleventh in the A-Z blogging challenge series for April.
