One word that is used is 'gay' - meaning, of a sunny disposition (not a reference to who they might hop into bed with).

Can anyone for the life of me come up with a single, mono-syballic word alternative to "gay"?? I thought about "fay" but it doesn't quite fit.

I'm stumped.

LOL, if I were you, I'd rewrite the whole line
