The amazing thing about vocabulary is realizing that one word can have so many different meanings. Here’s today’s word:
Spunk ~ 1. a. a woody tinder: punk;
b. any of various fungi used to make tinder
2. mettle pluck
3. spirit, liveliness

My typical usage for this word is for the third part of the definition–spirit, liveliness.
