Blog Challenge "C"

Okie dokie.  Back on track today!  Today's word is one you should definitely find a way to work into your vocabulary.

C is for: Callipygous

When I read this word, I didn't even have a good guess as to what it meant.  You say it like so: "Calli" like "California," "py" like the "Pie" you eat, and "gous" like the name "Gus."  Calli-PIE-gus.  Callipygous.  (You could also say callipygian like a California + pidgeon.  It means the same thing.)

It is an adjective for having a "well-shaped buttocks."  That's right.  A nice booty!  Let's just say that the cruise we just got off of was loaded with callipygous ladies!  (Including my wife, of course. :) )

So women: take this as a compliment if anyone ever tells you.  (And teach the word to your man, so he can tell you!)

And men: learn this!  It gets you brownie points for the complement and for being smart.  You can't lose!

Well, it's no wonder I've never heard of that buttocks are very far from being callipygous!!

:-) Love this!!! At least now if someone says it to me I'll know it's a compliment!

(might come in useful on the Scrabble board, too!)

Good luck with the A-Z challenge!

SueH I refuse to go quietly!

Wonderful word. I must remember, while walking the dog, that I'm improving my calypygian-nous!
Thanks for dropping by...
