A word a day

This week's theme: terms from French.

frisson (free-SON) noun
A sudden, brief moment of excitement or fear; thrill, shudder.

I had one of these last night when I realized I left my purse on the Annapolis shuttle. The last day of CNS and I pull something like this. I didn't realize my mistake until I had dropped off Beth, Shawn wasn't home and I had to race back to Annapolis, crying and furious with myself. I guess alls well that ends well because the bus driver had rescued my purse and I'm ok, but it was a horrible night.
