#31: the word "peevish"

Reason to Be Happy #31: The word peevish

I just like it. It's not used often enough for my liking.
My favorite delivery of it ever was from Helena Bonham-Carter (as Lucy Honeychurch) in A Room With a View (one of my favorite movies), when she says of her musical choices, "Mother says Beethoven makes me peevish."
