Word Wednesday 8: Alacrity

Alacrity is a noun that means 'cheerful readiness, promptness, or willingness.' Basically, when you're happy to do something, you'd probably do it with alacrity. If, for instance, you like writing (which is likely, if you're following this blog) you'd hopefully open up a notebook or your typing program of choice with alacrity. If you saw someone you like, you might greet them with alacrity. I bite right into a good piece of chicken with alacrity because I do so love chicken :)
