What does "kiki" mean?  I understand it in context, but wonder if it has a life of its own.  Thanks.

Hi Carol,

I must admit that I had no idea where the well- used expression : 

‘C’est parti mon kiki !'

came from but after a bit or research I found this French page with some explanation -

https://www.expressio.fr/expressions/c-est-parti-mon-kiki

Hope you like it!

The explanation to which you referred was interesting -- but not very illuminating.  I will just accept that "C'est parti mon kiki!" is an idiom for which there is no comprehensible (or rational) explanation!  I appreciate your investigation into it.  Thanks!
