Challenge of the [day|week|month]? Devise a nice, smart idiom to say by the way in Q.

My first line of thinking is around the roots AD(A), HEK, SAT (=> "beside, aside, to the side"), but have not yet been able to come up with a nice way of using them. Of course other metaphors could work as well.

 

Any ideas out there?

That does seem like the right root: HEK seems to have connotations of exclusion and exception, and SAT seems more like "special". I would consider using an abstract noun as in *arquetie or *areques, *arques to catch the adverbial sense of the English phrase in a Quenya style.
