The Golden Book Illustrated Dictionary (Bu to Di) defines "delightful" as: giving pleasure- Aunt Emma's visit to our house was delightful. It gave happiness and pleasure to everyone.
Followed very closely, and not to be confused with: "Delirious" -- Temporarily out of control of one senses; raving; talking wildly, etc.
Not a bad descriptor for how things might have gone this early morning when I awoke to discover that the children had changed the settings on the camera and my first two takes of the bag "Delightful" all landed up as "deleted". "Delightful" had to wait until I could rouse the technical advisor in the family and wait for him to restore the camera to its more reliable function. Then, had it not been quite so early, I may have become wildly excited or aroused. - The city was delirious with joy when the home team won the pennant.
This post comes to you compliments of the 1961 edition of The Golden Book Illustrated Dictionary; Letters Bu to Di.
"Delightful" is the kick-off to "Hippy Week" - This in response to criticism I have recently received, accusing me of becoming a "fabric snob" and begging the return of more authentically recycled pieces. Not to mention names, but my daughter Arianna, and her other mother Rose may have something to do with that.
"Delightful" is made of a gold bedspread, a floral table cloth, a piece of brown upholstery, a floral sheet, and Loretta's pants.
Bids are open until 6 pm, cst.
Peace out, man.
