pIm vuDwIj.

I only "get soaked" in the shower if I try to use it as a substitute
for soaking in a hot bath. That uses too much water, though. If I'm
just cleaning myself, I certainly get *wet*, but I don't get *soaked*.

I believe that the original meaning of "marinate", along with the
expanded "soak", refers to putting something in a tub full of liquid
and letting it sit there for a while. KGT gives "bathing" as an
example of {HaH'egh}, and I don't believe "showering" matches the
idea. I embrace Worf's comment about swimming; it supports my opinion.

None of the given meanings of {HaH} seems right for pouring or
splashing liquid over something.
