All Manner of Words…

Although this girl wakes early, I don’t bolt out the door for a bit. No, I’m not that high maintenance. It’s just that I read a little, take in the news of the day and drink enough coffee to give an elephant the shakes. And there’s the mascara.

Imagine the horror when this nugget shows itself at 6:45 a.m.: “How to Make Your Guy Horny According to His Sign.” Pardon me? The H-Word is one of those words; Words that should not leave the lips of mannered ladies. As opposed to F-bombs which enhance conversation, words like moist, C U Next Tuesday, the P-word (even for a cat) and, of course this H-word.

As for the article, my dolls, if you have to search his astrological sign to find how to make him, um, want you–you may be in more trouble than you think. Guys seldom need some sort of strategy. When they’re ready, it’s pretty evident and they rarely make a secret of the fact, non?

Perhaps a lesson in manners of the verbal sort is in order?

General guidelines are pretty simple. Would you say the word in front of your Mama? Most likely one would not refer to Dear Mama as H_rny or make reference to her P_ss_, especially since ladies do not possess such things. When was the last time you paired her with something “moist” or “called her a C U Next Tuesday.

Would you use it in front of your friends? At work? With a client? In front of your child? Language offers us so many alternatives.

“Both robbed of air, we both lie in one ground,
Both whom one fire had burnt, one water drowned.”

It’s John Dunne, famed writer, professing physical desire for a lover.

Or this William Butler Yeats favorite:

“Wine comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
That’s all we shall know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
I lift the glass to my mouth,
I look at you, and I sigh.”

H_rny is the descriptor of choice? Pfft.
