Delicious words

"Spindrift" is one of my favorite words. It tastes good to say, and it evokes a wonderfully airy image and spacious sentiment.

I've always loved the staccato of "ecstatic", experientially speaking, and of course its meaning gives the pleasure of saying it an additional boost.

Other favorites include "scintillating", "wallflower", knickers", and almost anything clipped (e.g., "totes" or "whatevs").

Do you have any favorite words? What are they, and what do you love about them?
