I feel like I have heard this word before, but not often enough to be able to create my own sentence using it properly in context. Does this happen to other people (not only with this word, but with words in general)?

They took a jaunt to an amusement park...Sometimes it helps to use new words in writing before activating them in daily conversation. As familiarity grows, using the word routinely becomes natural.

A jaunty gentleman named John jogged on a jaunt to the gym.

MichalG - when it happens to me I then see the word all over the place. We took a quick jaunt through the park.

It's interested that the meaning of this word doesn't seem very similar to that of "jaunty."
