It has been said that women are radiant but having checked the definition of radiant it seems it is, sending out light; shining or glowing brightly which put me in mind of a lighthouse which also puts out bright light and makes a noise like a fog horn but this was not the picture I wanted to paint.
Further research led me to the definition which included the example to radiate which was to put out heat, my initial thought here also led me up the garden path, for as we all know, when giving out heat, women glow, men perspire, and horses sweat. Not too bad initially but in these days of equal rights etc, I wondered if women would demand we were all the same and therefore all sweated, once again not the picture of delicate radiance I had wished to portray.
Perhaps the image of woman, radiating delicate beauty and softness is perhaps a little old fashioned and one I should steer away from and look more in the direction of the superwoman type of character, luminous and flashing through the sky radiant with super human powers.
I know very little of the sort of film I have just described which means the next sentence will not contain much information of any practical use to anyone who may wish to embark on a new career as a superwoman or superman for that matter, the only snippet I do have is, should you find yourself in close proximity to kryptonite which is radiating an eerie green light remove yourself from the situation as fast as you can, preferable without coming into contact with the substance.
Well, I have to leave now as my wife has just entered the room looking radiant in her new frock, we are off to visit friends and shall be travelling in one of my motorcars as neither of us possess the superhuman ability to fly.
