Z Is For Zaftig

Zaftig.
Maybe not a word you are familiar with.
It means to be voluptuous or pleasantly plump.
Like every woman in my family, except me.
I don't have a problem with it, but my mother does. She has gotten so tired of being zaftig, she is getting a Gastronal Bypass Surgery.

Honestly, I will miss the hugs. She currently gives the best ones. Will they change as she gets smaller?
Can men be zaftig?????

  3. That's a new word for me too. If I were zaftig, I wouldn't want to be called it.

  4. A new word and I love your definition. No, I don't believe men can be considered voluptous, women have a monopoly on that delicious word.

    Congratulations on completing the A to Z Challenge. It was quite a ride.
