What we call our despair is often only the painful eagerness of unfed hope. - George Eliot
I don't know if it's a "real" word, but it was real enough to us as kids when racing our cars.
Yes, it's a word!
Vanatru, the next word needs to start with an i.
(Not saying anyone is .........but it's a five letter word that starts with an i - next one is, too.............)
