This week's word is sanguine [sang-gwin], an adjective meaning "cheerfully optimistic, hopeful, or confident".  Sanguine can also be used when referring to the color blood-red.  Here are a few sentences I came up with:

While her classmates worried about the upcoming test,
Lucy felt sanguine -- she knew the information
inside and out.

Reaching across the table 
for the platter of rolls Mrs. Smith held out,
 Anna bumped against the glass
of cranberry juice with her elbow. 
She watched in horror as the glass tipped,
splashing the sanguine liquid
onto the once-white tablecloth.

How would you use "sanguine" in a sentence?
