My nephew, Karl, used this as his word of the day on his website. If you haven't been to this site, check it out. There's a great poem about summer that you should read aloud on the main page.
extremely or extravagantly eager; impassioned or zealous
My aunt Ginny suggested that I use "fervid" for a word of the day. I think it's a great word, pefectly suitable for the word of the day, but I like "perfervid" even more. "
A commenter on wet canvas (www.wetcanvas.com) referred to my artistic expression as fervid. That took me aback until I realized that he was right! I suggested the word to Karl and he took it up a notch! I like perfervid better too!
