In a word...

What type of words do you enjoy using when you write? I just love a 'fleshy' word:
  • Bulbous
  • Wobbling
  • Pink
  • Skin
  • Pores
  • Ripe
  • Pale
  • Pulpous
Flesh itself is just... oooh.

And fat - used out of the context of body flesh:
  • Fat mascara
  • Fat teardops
Don't get me started on 'wet' words:
  • moist
  • juicy
  • salivate... No, don't get me started.
So which words make you tingle as you write them?
