Neologistical Challenge

There should be a word for the stubborn, slightly unbalanced feeling one gets when one is standing in one’s left shoe, picking up dirty clothes and things from the floor to see if the matching right shoe is underneath. It should come from Greek roots, and it should be a silly word, which ought to be easy since the Greek word for shoe is “papoutsi”.

I’d make up the word myself, but I’m otherwise occupied at the moment.

    I could use a word like that; I can’t even tell you how often I do that.
