The previous post used the word ruddy.

To me it doesn't sound like what it means:

Rud"dy\, a. [Compar. Ruddier; superl. Ruddiest.] [AS. rudig. See Rud, n.]

1. Of a red color; red, or reddish; as, a ruddy sky; a ruddy flame. --Milton.

They were more ruddy in body than rubies. --Lam. iv. 7.

2. Of a lively flesh color, or the color of the human skin in high health; as, ruddy cheeks or lips. --Dryden.
