VOORPRET*

This is a word from the Dutch, without an exact English translation, but which means
“the anticipatory excitement before something happens.”

As ABBA put it so many years ago in their song,

…a sense of expectation hanging in the air
giving out a spark
across the room your eyes are glowing in the dark
and here we go again, we know the start, we know the end…
