-57- Mahj


Adjective. From Persian (again).

“Looking beautiful after recovering from an ailment of a disease”


The Persians seem to have a boat-load of words where we do not have a one-word equivalent. I wonder if it works the other way around? I shall put more research into this when I have the time!

Also, I’d like to add a caveat to the above photo. In no way do I advocate that Snooki (if that’s what it’s called?) ever had an illness, nor that ‘beautiful’ could be a way to describe her (as it is in the eye of the beholder).

Saying that, I think being on the cast of Jersey Shore is pretty much a terminal condition.
