Wednesday's Sexy Word of the Week

Yummmm.....








Lapidary









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.
