Word of the Week

I have to admit, I've included this word for its Wow-factor alone.  This is a very impressive five syllable weapon to have in your wordie arsenal.

Pulchritudinous: [puhl-kri-tood-n-uhs] adj; beautiful, comely.

Boy this is an adjective of Cyrano proportions.  (Yes, that was a nod toward the epic nose!)  Imagine the impression a young man could make using this well chosen describer...

"Julie, from the moment I first saw you, I thought you were the most pulchritudinous woman I've ever seen."

Even married guys could benefit from this one!

"No, honey, of course you're not fat; you totally have that pulchritudinous glow of pregnancy!"


  1. A less well-read woman might think this was a veiled insult :-) I'll have to practice saying this one in front of my mirror a few times before I debut my knowledge. I love your word of the week posts.

  2. Pulchritudinous. If it weren't for your pulchritudinous blog, my life would not be so interesting.
