stamen
effeminate

Chawkie?
post #28 of 102
what about shorter words?

I like spry! It has a great sound to it...spry
post #29 of 102

spry will fly, but is only sometimes sly

I like imbued and a bit longer one would be gustatory, a tasty word to be sure!

Now you are freaking me out, cause inculcate, imbued and permutations have been on my fave list for about a year! Weird!

Betroth
Last night my betrothed came home sick from work.

Persnickety I love that one!

Sorry to freak you

Kelli,
Sorry to freak you....I guess we both have really good taste in words!
Persnickety...now that is a real good one, and betroth, I like that very much
Don't be freaked, I'm just a geek!

Ginormous, Fabulous, Rouge, Managery (let's hope its spelled right lol) and Enchanting.

That's okay, I meant freaked in a good way! The pitfalls of online conversations (not hearing inflections) Hey, I'm a geek too

zenful, I can't think of a word for knickknacks besides bric-a-brac. I never liked that phrase for some reason, sounds like something our grandparents would have said in the 50's...

Boob dips...I like it, kudos to your ex for inventing it (I generally refer to our stuff as just clutter...of which we have too much of!)

...zenful, I can't think of a word for knickknacks besides bric-a-brac... How about potpourri in the non-herbic but collection meaning? Today I thought of ruse for a short word. Also morass and facile.
Having fun here!

Oh I just thought of panoply and also plethora, which is now drifting from the "bric-a-brac" meaning, but a fun word nonetheless.
