"...Poor little old human beings-they're jerked into this world without having any idea where they came from or what it is they are supposed to do, or how long they have to do it in. Or where they are gonna wind up after that. But bless their hearts, most of them wake up every morning and keep on trying to make some sense out of it. Why, you can't help but love them, can you? I just wonder why more of them aren't as crazy as betsy bugs." - Aunt Elner, 1978

(from Welcome to the World, Baby Girl!, a wonderful novel by Fannie Flagg.)

Leonardo squints up through one eye at Mathurine's impossibly rotund face peering down from a platter of turnips and beans.
-- R.M. Berry, Leonardo's Horse

. . .an expansive, down-to-earth man who is rotund in the way classic chefs used to be -- a walking advertisement for his own cooking.
-- Molly O'Neill, "Nuova England", New York Times, January 9, 1994

He had been small, rotund, and haughtily timid, his stomach protruding slightly in an upward jutting slope that brought into prominence the buttons of his waistcoat and trousers, marking the exact centre of his body with the obstetric line seen on fruits, -- the inevitable arc produced by heavy rounds of burgundy, schlagsahne, and beer.
-- Djuna Barnes, Nightwood

Rotund comes from Latin rotundus, "round" from rota, "a wheel."

turns out huggies actually doesn't know everything

she told me so herself - who would have thought?

i am thinking of becoming a recluse. no more leaving the house. no more talking to people. no more meeting stupid boys. no more worrying about what people think. i can eat dandelions and sleep all day with my cat. at night i will venture out to the mailbox. all the neighbourhood children will fear me.

and so they should.
