Chipper

Posted by Lotg (OZ) on July 08, 2004

I was about to email my big yank today and tell him I'm feeling rather 'chipper' today, when it occurred to me that it's a funny word really.

Terribly British of course. But why would such a word describe the rather cheerful way I'm feeling? Why chipper?
