Oh, how we love L words! Simply letting our tongues curl behind our teeth and roll outwards is a pleasure.
This is a place where, back in the old days, lots of the ship's extra riggings and gear were kept. In modern boats, it's where the steering gear equipment is located. Rudder shaft, et al. This means that it is an especially vulnerable place on the boat because of the holes in the hull required to get the shaft outside to the rudder. When under way and in stormy weather, a careful watch must be placed on the lazarette so that it doesn't begin to take on too much water.
It seems that we all have our own lazarettes, those special places in, or on, us that are susceptible to damage early in hard times but contain very important parts of what makes us who we are and keeps us going.
Keep a careful eye on your lazarette and be mindful of others'. Let's try to keep each other afloat.

Oh, would that we could, my darling, stay in all day and just softly look into each other's eyes, only talking when we truly had words of praise for the other and noticing the way the light fell on the covers as we rolled around under the sheets.
adj.-- of or relating to a chamber

Sleeping warm, lovelies? It's these cold days and seeming lack of sun that can sometimes make us feel funny. We can have a tendency to want to curl up and stew with our emotions and if someone angers or peeves us, we do not react well. That's when we may need to...
v. -- to make amends
Apologizing and making up can be very sexy, can't it? We all know what kind of chemistry can start bubbling up when affection is renewed.
We love R words. Even that slightest roll of the tongue to start things of means it's going to be a good day. We'll take the long E moving into the S. But move on to that AR that kind of feels like a growl. Not a mean growl, of course. Make it a seductive AAARRRRRGGGGHHH. The C is soft and leads us nicely into the diphthong that is IA. It's another long E and a long A. EEEEYAY. And that T wraps things up sweetly.
Darling, I'd like to resarciate because I know that I haven't been the best and you deserve the best. I'm trying to be with you. Please, work with me. Come here...

The V makes your bottom lip scrape across your front teeth. Hold it for the briefest of moments then move on to the short E. The P should pop perfectly. Try to separate the P and the R with just a slight pause, imperceptible to everyone but your own loins. Another short E then that hard C that clicks in the back of your mouth. Long O, oh how we love long Os. That softest of Ss should be taken seriously. Just let it linger, baby.
adj. -- full of prickly shrubs or bushes
