: : : : 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??!!
Prime rib steak, no veggies or potatoes to spoil my taste, just pure Prime Rib steak, German black forest torte with kirsch and whipped cream... and Krystal champagne all the way....
Of course I am not blushing.
