I'm not fervid for you. I'm fervent. - GROWL

I'm not fervid for you. I'm fervent.
"I'm not angry at you. I'm mad."

I've said that before! But, you know, it's because the words have two different levels of grr.

But fervid and fervent? I mean, come on. What's the point here? Pick one, dictionary! And just let that one stick!

... And I'd prefer fervent over fervid, if you don't mind, as clearly, this whole issue started with me having to look up fervid on dictionary.com after reading a passage in my work novel.

Plus? It sounds cooler.

I've always been a fan of wroth, and have been known on occasion to be quite put out.

*Gasp* No! You??

Heh, I'm seeing the conversation now. "I'm not angry. I'm WROTH."

No, that doesn't quite work. Besides, I'm rarely wroth with anyone.

Put out, on the other hand, works quite well. "I'm not angry, I'm just a bit put out."

I think I like my sentences better. It gets to have caps.

Well, sure, if size is your thing, go for it.
