Entry: glabrous (adj.)


In context: "...for much of the glabrous part of his childhood Hal'd been classified as somewhere between 'Borderline Gift'ed and 'Gifted'..."

Definition: Free from hair, down, or the like; having a smooth skin or surface. Now only as a scientific term.


Other:  I got a laugh out of that one.


But really, can there be an attractive word starting with 'g' and containing a 'b'?  No, I don't think so.
