It's time for ABC Wednesday and this week is all about the letter B. I'm presenting a vocabulary word each week, words that I like but don't often hear or use in everyday conversation. My word for this week is actually Papa Bear's clever suggestion. He prefers women with natural curves and has been known to use this word a time or two :-)
Adjective - 1. Excellent, admirable, or attractive
2. Audacious in a way considered admirable 3. Sexy, voluptuous
Synonyms - arresting, bold, brilliant, catchy, commanding, conspicuous,
dramatic, emphatic, eye-catching, flamboyant
Felix's coworkers were well aware of his longing for Carlita. Bored, and seeking ways to amuse themselves, they secretly arranged to have an usher hand him a note as he left the opera house one night. In beautiful, flowing script it read, "Meet me at my dressing room door tomorrow evening after the final performance, bring a bottle of red wine and a ruby rose."
Felix felt like he was in a dream, and he could hardly contain himself at work the next day. He was so distracted by his anticipation of the coming night that he failed to notice the snickers of coworkers as they whispered about him at the water cooler and photocopier. They rolled their eyes at him believing that he could ever have a chance to gain access to the Italian beauty's presence, and they looked forward to seeing his crestfallen face the next morning with a pathetic sense of glee.
What the coworkers hadn't counted on was the usher's friendship with Carlita. He had told her of Felix and his devotion, and of the mean trick his coworkers had played. Carlita was so very weary of men trying to impress her with their wealth and status, enamored only by her physical charms, and caring little for her musical talent or gentle heart.
When the usher escorted Felix backstage that evening following the show, a bottle of wine in one hand and the most magnificent rose he could find in the other, Carlita met him at the stage door and the two slipped away into the night, the music beginning to work it's magic in their hearts.
