word of the day – alacrity

alacrity (n.) cheerful readiness, promptness, or willingness

“Hunt have us permission to search the site, with an alacrity that moved him further down the suspect list (Mark demanded to see our warrant, but backed off fast when I told him I’d be happy to get one if he didn’t mind waiting around for a few hours), and Sophie and her team headed for the finds shed and started taping brown paper over the windows.”
from In the Woods by Tana French
