Say It To Me
Etymology: Middle English, from crul curly, probably from Middle Dutch; akin to Old High German krol curly
1 : to form (as the hair) into coils or ringlets
2 : to form into a curved shape : twist <curled his lip in a sneer>
3 : to furnish with curls
it's only one syllable, but the languid 'url' sound at the end of a harsh C makes it surprisingly sexy, in a badass-meets-good-girl kind of way (in my opinion). it makes me think of whisps of steam rising from hot drinks, or the very sexy and under-rated act of spooning, which is, in essence, curling around someone.
