We describe people as "hot" a little too often. That barista (baristo?) at Starbucks? Hot. Your friend's stepbrother? Hot. That guy in the State Farm commercial? Hotttttttt.
This weekend my aunt described Adam Levine as such: "I wouldn't kick him out of bed for eating crackers." It was then we decided we need a few more words in our vocabulary. We are writers, after all. Describing everyone and their brother (literally) as "hot" is not only repetitive, but boring.
So, here is our non-exhaustive list of ways to describe babes and hunks, in ways other than dull ol' "hot." Not that we'd complain if someone called us hot...
That guy / girl is...
- a dreamboat
- made in America, IN THE GORGEOUS FACTORY
- fresh out of the bakery (Hot buns? Sweetness? Get it?)
- eye candy
- a total Hemsworth
- the bee's knees
- the cat's pajamas
- the mole's mole
- a babesicle
- making me melt
- easy on the eyes
- simple on the contact lenses
- fit (Brit slang alert!)
- brilliant (Brit slang alert x2!)
- fetch (BRIT SLANG x MEAN GIRLS!)
- a Taser to the heart
