Well, dictionary.com says it might be a back-formation from feisty.damoge wrote:hey,all, is "fiesty" related to "fice"?
However, etymonline.com goes the other way. I especially like this part: "The 1811 slang dictionary defines fice as 'a small windy escape backwards, more obvious to the nose than ears; frequently by old ladies charged on their lap-dogs.'"
So, at your holiday dinners you might wish to make it a point of not being "feisty."
Life is like playing chess with chessmen who each have thoughts and feelings and motives of their own.
