Wordplay #26 Zaftig
zaf-tig> full-figured: with a full-figured body
What can she say, she’s a wordaholic.
Made her way, one day at a time,
from A to Z without a skip. Had
thought exercise was supposed
to slim, but finds her vocabulary
now has a far more zaftig definition.

Notes: Thanks to all who stuck with me for the last few weeks. Hope someone else will take up the challenge and do twenty-six more. I’d really like to be on the reading end of this one. By the way, zaftig comes from Yiddish, via High German, meaning juicy. Love it.
