Ebullient, Coquette, and Volition

Three words used in dictation in the past two weeks from a psychiatric doctor...I frequently have to look up the spelling on his nonmedical terminology...Don't get him very often.

Ebullient: adj.: 1: Boiling, agitated.
2: Exuberant.
Coquette: n.: Flirt.
Volition: [L.volo, to wish:] The conscious impulse to perform any act or to abstain from its performance; voluntary action.

Please comment and use one in a sentence if you'd like--Thanks!

Surprised by her own volition, the exuberant cheerleader instantly became ebullient. (Well, let's give the angry, short-tempered flirt a break...this occurred after the yell leader dropped her on her head!)
