Alacrity

I seem to have noticed the word alacrity in multiple places recently, so here it is.

alacrity – brisk and cheerful readiness.

In the instances where this word appeared, it was usually someone doing something with alacrity or responding to a call to action, such as a military person responding to an order to fight. For me, I think the next time I sit down to a feast, I’ll do so with alacrity.
