Wednesday's Sexy Word of the Week

I'm not going to jerk you around this week. Let's get right to it:
Okay, now, be careful not to rush it. You guys should know that by now. That last S should be held almost to a fault. I just love that V. It gives you a chance to scrape your topfront teeth across your bottom lip like you don't get to do in everyday life.
This word may not get used very often but if you try hard enough and really pay attention, I bet you'll get to use it quite efficiently.
--adj. Belonging to the Malvaceae, the mallow family of plants.
Well, that helps because we all know that the mallow family is, right? Marshmallow? Negative.
The mallow family includes such as the cotton plant, hibiscus, hollyhock, mallow(duh), okra(which i love), and rose of Sharon. Not a bad little family, really.
Try something like "Oh, yes, I really like a lot of the malvaceous plants." in response to someone discussing their new hibiscus.
Go do it!

Wednesday's Sexy Word of the Week



It takes practice to make an "L" sound sexy. Use your whole tongue and rake it across the roof of your mouth, coming all the way out to the end of your teeth. Also, short "A"s are not sexy, so lengthen them as much as possible. And the same goes for hard "D"s. It should sound closer to the soft Spanish "D".

And what exactly does this word, this oh-so-sexy word mean?

n. One who cuts and engraves precious stones---adj. Pertaining to the art of cutting stones.

Okay, that's pretty cool. A sexy word that has to do with precious stones and the handling and forming of them. Maybe we can appropriate this word for our own purposes. We can become life lapidaries. Cutting and shaping and engraving our precious lives.

Wednesday's Sexy Word of the Week

The cold, cold wind requires that we be warmed by an especially sensuous word.
This word just rolls so sweetly. Each syllable turns entirely over to the next like waking up with that beautiful someone in the morning.
Again, don't rush the word out of your mouth. Let the "mp" sit before you move on to the "end" which should not be an overly short 'i' or 'e' but rather somewhere between the short 'a' and short 'e'.
And the longer you can make that 'u', the better. Don't make it sound silly but give it attention.
Does anyone care what this word means? No? Me, neither. If you do, feel free.
Big thoughts coming soon, kids. Stick around.
