Saturday Grow With Words

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

Source: Merriam-Webster Dictionary

 

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