Sudorific exhaustion…

I remember being young, and playing with our neighbors dog. My friend and I would run in circles chasing each other, with the dog at our heels. All three of us would ended up falling on the ground in sudorific exhaustion.

sudorific \ soo-duh-RIF-ik \

adjective:
1. Causing sweat.
2. Sudoriparous.
noun:
1. A sudorific agent.

Origin: Sudorific comes from the Latin word sūdor meaning “sweat.” The word “sweat” is unrelated and comes from the Old English, swote .
