Jouissance – ZHwēˈsäNs

A noun, physical or intellectual pleasure, delight, or ecstasy.

Vicissitudes - vəˈsisəˌt(y)o͞od

A noun, a change of circumstances or fortune, typically one that is unwelcome or unpleasant.

How Trev used it: "My brother and I, having shared the euphoric jouissance of that legendary victory have often turned to each other since, when faced with life's vicissitudes, and simply repeated what has become, for us, an emboldening mantra - remember Istanbul."

joie de vivre -ZHwä də ˈvēvrə/

A noun, exuberant enjoyment of life.

How Trev Used it: "Of course, if there is one thing that's guaranteed to drain the joie de vivre from your heart, dear reader, it is the wretched months of uncertainty and crushed hope that form the summer transfer window."

Gourmand - go͝orˈmänd/

A noun, a person who enjoys eating and often eats too much.


A connoisseur of good food

nonpareil ˌnänpəˈrel/

As an adjective: having no match or equal; unrivaled.

As a noun: an unrivaled or matchless person or thing.

As a candy: a flat round candy made of chocolate covered with white sugar sprinkles

How Trev Used it: "Doubtless the dancing striker has suffered by comparison with the frankly unequalled brilliance of a certain now-departed flesh gourmand, but the Birmingham native is worthy of so much more praise and, with time on his side, he has the potential to become the nonpareil of Liverpool's recent strikers"
