Embonpoint


Lazing about on his boat in the port of Monaco. Quite an 'embonpoint', wouldn't you say? Taken, I believe, from the French - en bon point = in good condition.

Note: The Frugal Traveler from the New York Times featured Monte Carlo and Menton recently. Click on the link read about Monaco and then see a video of Menton. Thanks so much to Alden for this information.

Yes, he matches the dictionary definition of embonpoint: very well rounded.

It is interesting to note how many words in the English language actually come from French. Always a positive impact.
