WRITING CONTEST #36: use the word “affable” in a sentence

DEADLINE:    May 6th

SENTENCE WRITING CONTEST: Every Monday a new, interesting vocabulary word will be posted here, as well as a sentence using that word.

Your job is to create and post a new, better sentence in the comment box, using the same word. Yes, you may change the form of the word. Yes, I’ll be the judge. Yes, I am a subjective judge  ( I like clever or funny, I hate bigotry).

The winning sentence will be announced here the following Monday.

 THIS WEEK’S WORD: ~ AFFABLE ~     affability, affably

(AF-ah-ble) 1. easy and pleasant to speak to; approachable. 2. gentle and gracious.

She took one glance around the room and saw all the Men and Women in their fancy attire and thought to herself, how happy she was that she went with her first choice. It was a simple orange satin sheath dress which she paired with a pair of gold sling backs and accessories. It wasn’t expensive or fancy but it made her feel affable.
