REFLECTIONS [from Dictionary, the Apple app]

David Auburn

“Since it’s difficult now to actually be saucy—lighthearted, flirtatious impudence is nonsensical in a society that produces Girls Gone Wildvideos—I am nostalgic for this word. It could be revived, though. It doesn’t have to be limited to the serving-wench context. Try switching genders—couldn’t some men be usefully described as saucy? (At the press conference, he responded with saucy evasions.) Or used to anthropomorphize alluring inanimate objects? (The stilettos lounged saucily in the display window.)”

“Saucy”, fresh-picked from me to you . . .

That garden plot. Still.
Seasoned, properly so.
Turning up the heat.
