This week's word is exuberant [ig-zoo-ber-uhnt], an adjective meaning "overflowing with enthusiasm". In case you're wondering why I picked this word (and picked it specially for this week), just take a look at my first example:
My exuberant son Nick burst through the door,
dropped his backpack to the floor, and shouted,
"Goodbye, school! Hello, summer vacation!" :)
As the long book-signing line inched closer to the front,
the exuberant young girl bounced up and down.
She couldn't wait to meet her favorite author!
My hand shook as I set the letter from the magazine
editor on the table. She was going to publish my story!
I had never felt so exuberant in my life.
How would you use the word of the week in a sentence? What makes you exuberant?
