New Word Wednesday


I'm am enjoying, learning a new word a week. I think that is all my mind can possibly handle at this point. At least it is a start, LOL. So, here is this week's word:

alacrity \uh-LACK-ruh-tee\ , noun:
A cheerful or eager readiness or willingness, often manifested by brisk, lively action or promptness in response.

As the rock band played their most popular song, the girls' alacrity was shown through flailing arms and loud screaming.

After being told she was a winner, she responded with such alacrity, that her children came running from the back of the house to see what was going on.

I hope you enjoy this weeks' word. I'm going to try to use it as much as possible. Maybe than it will actually stick in my mind.
