(pronounced free-SOH)

You know how your hair almost feels like it is standing on end when you suddenly get excited about something” Use that amusing image of your frizzed out roots to remember this word, which means a thrill, shudder, or quick moment of emotional exhilaration.

Example: When Jonathan walked in the building for his final interview with the firm’s three principals, a frisson of exhilaration shot through his entire body as he realized that this single moment could completely define his future in the interior design industry.
