This word is similar to avarice in that it means greedy. But the word is even more relevant to this post in that it means greed for money. Surprising, right? We think of Cupid the flying cherub, firing his arrow away and making Romeos and Juliets out of us. To avoid any confusion, instead imagine Cupid flying around shooting arrows into people’s wallets/purses and then swooping in and taking the loot. Oh what cupidity!
