Word of the Day: Zaftig

Today’s word I’ve only heard about on the internet as a friend’s username.  So I’m going to completely botch my effort at an intelligent use of the word in a complete sentence.  I’m okay with this because this is a weird word but very fun. (It is such a fun word that auto-correct wants me to change it to rafting!)  It certainly falls under the category of “Learn something new every day!” because I never would have thought this word was referring to women specifically.

zaftig“My friend is a zaftig geek and proud of it!”

Zaftig – adjective

1) of a woman:  having a full rounded figure :  pleasingly plump

Interesting Origins of the word:
Yiddish zaftik juicy, succulent, from zaft juice, sap, from Middle High German saf, saft, from Old High German saf
