Why being called pretty isn’t all that …

muchierIt’s one thing to be called pretty, but when someone describes another person as lovely (for me at least) it connotes and entirely different perception. One that’s more … heck, I dunno, much more muchier, I guess.

Similarly, when an individual is described as elegant rather than sophisticated, I’m more likely to picture a refined Coco Channel or Grace Kelly type than I am a Law & Order suit donning district attorney.

Along those same lines, I find witty people more entertaining than funny people, clever folks more engaging than the intellectual, and charming individuals more charismatic than their well-spoken counterparts. Yet, it’s a rarity that I meet someone who’s been described as witty, clever or charming as they are always comical, funny, intelligent, smart, “with a good vocabulary.”

So as you move about your day … be it in an office with fellow sophisticates or on a computer (like me) desperately trying to find the right words to describe the people and the situations you’re putting to paper, turn your brain into a working thesaurus and reach to define the world with style rather than mediocrity and we will all be much much more muchier for it ; ) 

Muchiness: The innocence and imagination that appears in the hearts of young children. As they grow older, they become more mature, and gain responsibilities. They lose their muchiness.

Today’s post inspired by my thesaurus-like brain and the Daily Prompt: Elegant. Now go find your muchiness!

    A very much-y post! I’ll definitely incorporate muchier into my conversations from now on :)

  2. Love this post! A right click brings up my much used thesaurus.
    I hope to retain muchiness, even if it means not going to the dark side of maturity
    …especially since I just typed munchiness, which relates to peanuts and potato chips and pistachios and other spnacks. :D

  3. “pretty” can indicate a skin deep appeal. “Beautiful”, “lovely” and “wonderful” seem to indicate a deeper beauty. I’ll make sure to check my thesaurus before complimenting someone!
