In Goddesses, the proposal is to hay for 8 counts and then reverse.

I was in your set for Parson's Farewell in the class in the Alumni
Hall, and asked how you do the hay, and that's what you told me there.
If the on-line schedule matches the real one (I don't remember), you
told us that on Friday PM, and I proposed it in Goddesses on Saturday

So shove the credit for the idea back to Gwommy.

Perhaps I should try teaching it in Parson's Farewell and Goddesses by
counting backwards from 15.  (You can't do an instant stop + turn +
resume, but 1 beat seemed to do.)
