convivial

Recommended Posts

Yes, convivial.

relating to, occupied with, or fond of feasting, drinking, and good company

Cool word, no? I dig.

Expand your vocabulary. Let's get descriptive.

How can you describe skydiving and how it affects you?

New words to you, only. None of this elementary shooting the shit talk. ;) (my gosh, man, there's got to be a non-common word for boobies out there for the clays and the rest of the boys - kinda serious thread tho keep in mind)

That word, convivial, describes the aftermath of skydiving for me, personally. C'mon play along....how about you?

The relative wind rushes past my ears in excess of 100mph. But the sound it makes isn't that harsh noise you hear when you stick your head out of a car window. It's like a mellifluous voice from the heavens.

Mellifluous - Sweet sounding

I stir feelings in others they themselves don't understand. KA'CHOW !

Taken from the New York Times Crossword Puzzle Dictionary, Breasts, my favorite selections are:

Bazoom
Brisket
Mastia

New word sentence:

Skydiving is not for the pusillanimous.

(O.K., that's not exactly a new word for me, but I did have to check the spelling...)
Definition: lacking courage and resolution : marked by contemptible timidity (Webster's)
