Amazing Adjectives, Number Seven!

Happy Monday!  Here’s a new word for my vocabulary . . . “There was no doubt he was interested only in zaftig females, whose overflowing ripeness would prove a fitting complement for his own carefully tended masculinity.”

zaftig

\ zahf-tik, -tig \, adjective;

From the Yiddish zaftik, meaning “juicy, succulent;” from German saftig, meaning “juicy.” Of a woman: sexy; plump; well-proportioned; curvaceous.
