Cute (adj.): Non-threatening, innocent. To be used when something (or someone) makes you want to hug it, kiss it, and love it forever (brownie points to anyone who knows what that last part was referencing).
Cute can also be used to describe an outfit. In this sense, it is used to convey that the person giving the compliment covets or admires the article of clothing in question. For example, “That’s a cute turtleneck dickey you have on” (disclaimer: I haven’t actually heard anyone say this).
But, most of the time, cute can describe animals, both real and imaginary, 3-D or 2-D.
I will be posting something monthly to get your dose of all things (I think are) adorable. Because let’s face it–aren’t we all looking for something cute to brighten up our day?
