unsexual sexy

There is currently a discussion on one of my forums about how a tiny laptop can be "sexy". Some people do not seem to get the concept of "sexy" as it applies to things that are not actually sexual. I've always had a definite divider between the two, and apparently i'm not the only one who enjoys the dichotomy. Therefore, allow me to expand on my list of things that are "unsexual sexy". Ahem.

- the big, feathery feet of draft horses such as Clydesdales, Friesians, and Gypsy Vanners
- Christine's orange stroller
- wet black sand
- lush summer grass on bare feet
- certain kitchen gadgets, such as expensive mixers in candy hues or enameled cast iron
- Lush shampoo bars in tins
- big, drippy, medium-rare hamburgers
- bright silver or crystal drawer pulls on white enameled wood
- our new, dark wood baby gate
- pit bulls, especially blue or brown ones
- the smell of oil paint and/or linseed oil
- Amy Butler's Nigella fabrics
- finishing your taxes
- fancy walking canes
- new car smell
- acoustic guitars with metal strings
- hand-knitted wrist warmers
- brand new hardcover books, and the lovely crack they make the first time you open them
- a freshly cleaned aquarium

Etc. Now, any one of those things I could call "sexy", but not Daniel-Day-Lewis-in-Last-of-the-Mohicans sexy. Get it? Got it? Good.

You forgot to mention the sexy gunstock warclub wielded by Chingachook to take out Magwa.
