I had an interesting conversation with a friend today. It was in reference to the types of adjectives men use to describe women. Let's face it, words like "cute", "pretty", and "hot" are a little lackluster. They're the equivalent of being referred to as "baby" by a stranger. You're not the kind of person who has a problem with that? Then get out of here.

This conversation began at a sandwich shop as this song blasted over the speakers:
Leaving the commentary on this hilarious trainwreck of a masterpiece to you, schmoo.

At any rate, this is a call to action. One- or two-syllable adjectives just don't cut it. Using the word "sexy" to describe a "booty" is a nice way to get a punch in the teeth. Three-syllable adjectives, however, harken back to a time before we even had words like "booty". Did you know that "bromance" is officially in the OED now?? Outrageous.

I'd like to think that there are people out there who still use three-syllable adjectives. Let's think of some now.

Beautiful
Radiant
Delightful
Glorious
Generous
Intelligent
Amazing
Statuesque
Alluring
Glamorous
Resplendent
Ravishing
Stunning
etc.

What are some others? Please, for the love of god, don't say "hump-worthy". That's a hyphenate. It doesn't count.
