my funny valentine

There are a lot of body words that turn people off. I’m thinking nostril, for example, or gland or scrotum. But there are also body words that people love for their beauty, maybe, or their comic charm.

Ankle
Wrist
Nape

Waist
Thumb
Pinky

Fingertip
Instep
Elbow

Pulse point
Lip
Brow

Eyelash
Eyelid
Knuckle

Calf
Palm
Tush

Derriere
Hip
Cuticle

Muscle
Navel
Cuspidor

I like your portrait of connotative language and the body both negative and positive: wrist, pulse point, lip, brow...

I enjoyed this!

Sigh...I was having annual body part checkups yesterday.

What about the purlicue? The dip from thumb to pointer finger...the lesser known part-names have their own charm.
