: : : Woman would be more charming if one could fall into her arms
: : : without falling into her hands.

: : Hmmmm....
: : Male chauvinist this fella, I presume?
: : How language can reflect the undercurrents in a culture...
: : Fear Huggy, remember your Turkish Trader who was courting you?
: : Hey, these guys are not sooo bad after all.
: : Here is a little comparison:
: : American men call a good looking woman: "knockout," "provocative."
: : Both description show the sex-appeal of the female as something aggressive the men have to protect themselves against, or have to attack = provocative can mean they feel provoked to violate...

: : Turkish men describe a good looking, beautiful or sexy female
: : as: Bir ichim su = "a drink of water"
: : Now, a drink of water is salubrious, refreshing, life giving.

: : Which one would you, as a female, prefer? To be seen as someone who incites violence, or let's use the lesser term: action...
: : or to be seen someone who is salubrious, refreshing, life and health giving?

: : Another thought for the day.

: Yiiiiiikkkkkkeeeeesssss!
: Cries out the TowneCrier!
: 4th line from the top, I meant Dear Huggy, not Fear Huggy!
: I don't want you to fear anything at all, Huggy! Keep your heart open, give us the gifts of your beautiful daily thoughts, and SMILE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

: Smile with love light and laughter


No worries, Vita!

As far as descriptions of women go - um, not sure that I would like to be referred to as a drink of water either! Sounds a bit dull to me. If I was a drink, I think that the best compliment you could give me would be to describe me as a glass of champagne - bubbly, ticklish, always at the big parties and enjoyed by people with smiles on their faces! If I was to be described as a food, I would want to be a doughnut - round, soft and sweet inside!

What would you be??!!
